“Rest, Recreation and `Roos”
The annual Walk into History celebrates the stories of one particular area of Mill Valley each year. The Thirty-eighth Walk will be on Sunday, May 24th, Memorial Day Weekend “Rest, Recreation and `Roos”.
The 2015 walk starts at the famous Outdoor Art Club at 1 West Blithedale Avenue, and takes us to Blithedale Canyon, to learn about builder Harvey Klyce, the Cushing and Billings families, the Redwood Lodge, Blithedale Hotel and the stories of this one-time popular resort area.
Walking tours begin every 15 minutes, starting at 9:30 am, from the Outdoor Art Club. The last group leaves at 4:00 pm, and returns at 6:00 pm.
Groups are led by trained volunteer Guides who are personable, and take great interest in local history. This Walk will wend through areas that are shaded by redwood trees, and areas that can be in full sun. Please dress accordingly, and consider wearing hats and bringing water. Portions of the Walk occur in unpaved, uneven areas. There is one set of City of Mill Valley maintained stairs on this Walk.
Admission: $15 for Members of the Mill Valley Historical Society;
$20 for non-Members; $10 for ages 10-18 years.
