The Story of Tomales

Tomales began with a port — the community’s center for almost twenty years.

The village was further shaped by, among other things, a disagreement between its two founders, the changing methods of transportation, an infamous earthquake, and a disastrous fire.

The exhibit follows the town from its beginning in 1850 to the present and includes an overview of the town’s simple, well-preserved architecture.
