The guidebook for the 2013 History Walk, Cascade Canyon Pioneer Families, is now available to read or download from our Guidebook page.
This year marks the 36th History Walk sponsored by the Mill Valley Historical Society and it will take place on Sunday, May 26. Guided tours leave from the Outdoor Art Club every fifteen minutes between 9:30 am and 3:00 pm. No reservations required. Just show up anytime.
The theme is the History of Cascade Canyon Pioneer Families. A bus will take us from the Outdoor Art Club to Burlwood, the estate of Joseph Eastland, founder of the town of Mill Valley. We will tour the grounds of the 22-room mansion, the main building on the original seven-acre estate. We will then walk less than a mile on several streets in Cascade Canyon, stopping at century old mansions of pioneer families. The walk ends where it began, at Burlwood. A bus will return us to the Outdoor Art Club.
