First Wednesday with Ranger Christopher Edwards
Wednesday, November 3, 2021
Built in 1890 in Tiburon, CA by the San Francisco and North Pacific Railroad, the Ferryboat Eureka is a legacy of transportation to and from Marin County. Though she ended her operational life in 1957 running to Oakland for Southern Pacific, it was her 51 years (1890-1941) carrying rail cars, commuters, automobiles, and weekend travelers to and from Marin that were her historical mainstay. Join Park Ranger Chris Edwards as he speaks to the life of this vessel, her place in overall ferry service, and how the ship struggled and adapted through time to survive as the museum she is today.
This event is a collaboration with the Mill Valley Historical Society.
The event will be held on Zoom.
