Historical Information on Mill Valley History


Eastland – Mill Valley Station (now Sunnyside and Miller) around 1894

Mill Valley, CA incorporated in 1900, but its story began long before that.  Two former History Room docents, Doris Bassett and Joan Murray, created a detailed article discussing the history of our town.
