Tiburon Walking Tour #1: From the Coast Miwok to the Coming of the Railroad

What You'll Get

On this 1½ – 2 hour walking tour, you’ll learn about Tiburon’s history before the arrival of the railroad in 1884. You’ll also learn about the lives of the indigenous people, the Coast Miwok, their first encounters with Europeans, and how they were treated by the Spaniards and later the Americans. We’ll talk about the early Spanish explorers in the 1500s and why it took them another 200 years before Juan de Ayala entered the Golden Gate into San Francisco Bay. You’ll learn about The Tiburon Peninsula’s first European settlers, John Reed and his descendants, and what life was like before the railroad. We’ll visit Lyford’s Stone Tower, the entrance to Dr. Benjamin Lyford’s Hygeia, a vision of Tiburon as the world’s finest health resort and residential community. You’ll also learn about the history of Angel Island, called by some “The Ellis Island of the West,” and how it was saved from commercial development. And you’ll learn about the history of the City of Belvedere, which began in the 1890s as the weekend and summer home of the wealthiest San Franciscans.
