The John Muir National Historic Site in Martinez, California was the home of John Muir for the last 24 years of his life. The 1882 home showcases Muir's "scribble den," where he penned many of his famous works, which have been heard around the world.
We support John Muir National Historic Site as a center for education and inspiration, to help others understand and appreciate the far-reaching legacy of John Muir.
