"Picturing the Point Reyes Peninsula"
April 9, 2012 through May 30, 2012

The public was invited to revisit the people and landscapes of the Peninsula through historic photographs and captions examining the area's history. The exhibit touched upon the Coast Miwok, 16th century explorers, the Mexican Land grant era, and the settlement of West Marin after the Gold Rush as a major dairy ranching and recreation area.

The photographs that were displayed are from the Point Reyes National Seashore Archives and the Jack Mason Museum of West Marin History.
