Join Larry Clinton, past President of the Sausalito Historical Society, and Mike Moyle, SHS member and Chair of the IDESST Sausalito Portuguese Cultural Center History Committee, who will take us on a fascinating audio-visual tour through Sausalito’s history from the early days through World War II. They will focus on significant parts of the community that no longer exist, including the Northwestern Pacific railroad line, Pine Point (dynamited during World War II), the American Distilling Company (destroyed by fire in the 1960’s), and the Waldo community (supplanted during World War II by the housing project for Marinship workers).

NOTE: the programs at the Mill Valley Library generally sell out, so it is ESSENTIAL that people register in advance for this talk: CLICK here to register or call (415) 389-4292 x3.
