Landmarks History Articles


The Landmarks Society was offered the opportunity to contribute a monthly article to The Ark which of course we accepted. Hover on an image below for the article topic and click to read.



Landmarks Archivist Dave Gotz and Archives Volunteer Susan Cluff contributed one-page articles to the free monthly magazine “Belvedere-Tiburon 94920” since it’s inception in August 2017 until June 2022. Our pieces are about various topics from Peninsula history with factual information and images drawn from the Landmarks History Collections. Below are links to the articles. Enjoy.
