The Mill Valley Historical Society‘s 39th Annual “Walk Into History,” co-hosted by the Outdoor Art Club, dives into Sunnyside Avenue and its periphery, a part of town that the walk’s guidebook says was “once populated by local merchants, teachers, ferry and railroad workers, blue collar workers and professionals, transplants from the 1906 SF earthquake and fire, and outdoor enthusiasts. Today’s smooth roads and tidy neighborhoods have replaced the open fields and muddy, rutted streets once so common to this area. However, love of home and community continue to be a unifying theme for all people living in MillValley from its earliest days to now.”
The 411: Tours leave from the Outdoor Art Club, 1 West Blithedale Ave., every 15 minutes between 9:30am and 4pm on Sunday, May 22. Tickets are $15 for Historical Society members, $20 for non-members, $10 for teens with a student ID and free for children under 10. More info and tix.
