The Historical Walking Tour

We offer historical tours of the downtown Point Reyes Station area every Saturday during the Farmer's Market season starting at 10am. Tours run over an hour, averaging 75minutes.

Tours begin at little blue Visitor's Center next to the historic Grandi building. The tour moves down A Street toward the wetlands, then we venture down some back streets of Point Reyes Station. Explore the route you'll be taking which includes  main streets with our interactive map.  

We will be providing the an historical overview, focussing on the period of significance 1871-1933 . . .

"This is a very informative tour--locals and visitors are all sure to enjoy it!
"Great to see youth so informed and interested in history."
