      Tiburon Walking Tour #2: From the Coming of the Railroad Until Today

      On this walking tour, you’ll learn about Tiburon’s history as a blue-collar, rough and tumble railroad town from 1884 until 1967. You’ll learn about the major events and historic figures of this time, including: The Donahue brothers, who brought the industrial revolution to California by way of Tiburon, the fires that virtually destroyed the town three times and how the town dealt with Prohibition, how Al Capone figures (twice!) in Tiburon’s history. Then you’ll learn about more modern history, including some of the Tiburon Peninsula’s notable residents, the decline of the railroad and Tiburon’s transformation into a suburban community and tourist destination. Find out how the dedication of two families helped maintain Main Street’s early 1900s character, and how conservationists fought hard to maintain the area’s physical beauty and small-town character. Learn about local landmarks like The Railroad and Ferry Depot Museum and its working model of the 1909 Tiburon rail yard, The Arks and the creation of Ark Row.
