China Cabin – KEEP THE CHINA AFLOAT!
Help fund the ongoing restoration of the Social Hall of the Paddle Steamer China, which was built in 1866. The Cabin is constantly battered by sun, wind and rain and each year needs significant work to fix the exterior wood panels, metal railings around the building, and outside varnishing of decks and benches. The interior gold leaf, walnut woodwork and floors are carefully treated annually as well.

Old St. Hilary’s
Help fund maintenance and upgrades at Old St. Hilary’s. Each year Landmarks does interior and exterior repair work on this iconic building. One of the new needs is to fix the gold cross above the church which has been battered by wind and rain and is decaying. We also maintain the rare wildflower preserve which surrounds the church, Old St. Hilary’s overlooks downtown Tiburon and the San Francisco Bay, and Landmarks is constantly protecting this pristine space.

Tiburon Railroad-Ferry Depot Museum
The Donahue Building, now known as the Railroad and Ferry Depot Museum, has watched over the Tiburon waterfront since 1884. It serves as a tribute to Tiburon’s history and is a destination for 12,000 visitors a year. Its corrugated metal roof has significant leaks and our bucket brigade can no longer keep up. The museum displays are at risk and we need your help to maintain the integrity of this historic structure. An initial bid to replace the roof came in at $152,000. It’s time for a new roof over this national and community treasure.

Landmarks Art & Garden Center
Believed to be the oldest existing building on the Tiburon Peninsula, the brick kiln cottage was built in 1872. There are near constant repairs needed to the cottage, and the upkeep of the one acre garden is a major annual expense. The Cottage needs a new coat of paint so we are actively fundraising for the cause.
Donate to the Art & Garden Center:
The Archives are located in a controlled environment at the Boardwalk Shopping Center. The collection contains photographs, art, maps, documents, books, journals, oral histories and artifacts focusing on the history of the Rancho Corte Madera del Presidio, an 1838 Mexican land grant to John T. Reed and Ylaria Sanchez. We are constantly seeking new treasures in and out of the community and the cataloging and caring for these items is a constant challenge.
