  • Starting point for loop trail to Tomales Point. Started in 1858 and run by Pierce and McClure families. Today the restored white washed buildings stand in contrast to the dark green cypresses planted as wind breaks. "There is no more extensive dairy in the township than that owned by A.J. Pierce on Tomales Point, and none better conducted." 1880 Marin County History
