We invite you to join us on Monday evening December 9, 2019 at 6:30 pm when historian Jim Holden -author of It Happened in Marin- will use rare maps and photographs to document four distinct geographic features of Marin which, together with citizen action, helped make Marin the place it is today.

Jim — an avid hiker — will also present the history of hiking maps of Mt. Tamalpais and vicinity, including Marin’s earliest hiking map.

A pop-up display of some of these rare maps will be on view.

The illustrated presentation and exhibit will be held at the Anne T. Kent California Room’s Map & Special Collections Annex at 1600 Los Gamos, Suite 182 in San Rafael.

We look forward to seeing you on December 9, 2019.
