The Belvedere-Tiburon Landmarks Society preserves local landmarks, artifacts, and open spaces of historical significance on the Tiburon Peninsula. Landmarks manages Old St. Hilary’s Landmark, Railroad-Ferry Depot Museum, S.S. China Cabin, Landmarks Art & Garden Center, and the History Collections for the enjoyment of our community and its visitors.

Landmark Activities include maintaining the properties, leading botanical and architectural tours, and providing concerts, lectures and exhibits. The History Collections house historical local art, photographs, artifacts, documents of our community, and also provide tours and educational materials to our schools.

The historical sites and the History Collections are significant assets to the community but the costs of preservation are not insignificant. The most important financial support comes from the membership base. PLEASE JOIN and help preserve our local heritage for future generations.
