West Marin & North Bay Earthquake Tour Day (Marin & Sonoma Counties)

California Historical Society

In an ongoing effort to commemorate the Great Quake of 1906, CA Historical Society (CHS) is planning a full day with Gary Holloway as guide on a motor coach, leaving from CHS headquarters downtown and driving to West Marin County to visit such earthquake-devastated sites as Bolinas, Olema and Point Reyes Station. From there we will drive to Santa Rosa and view sites where there was much damage and loss of life in that city in 1906.

Pulitzer Prize winning author Philip Fradkin will join us on the June 17th tour (another noted author will join the July 15th tour) leading us to the famous earthquake trail near Bear Valley. Lunch will be on your own in downtown Point Reyes Station. There will be a southern Marin County bus pickup point for those who do not wish to come into San Francisco. Due to keen interest, we are repeating this outing on two different dates.

Note: Please sign up in advance through CA Historical Society .
