“ROSS: A Rich History” Presented by Richard Torney and Fran Cappelletti

Join us to learn about the rich history of the small town of Ross, just “over the hill” from San Rafael. In a presentation that includes photos of people and events over the course of time, you’ll be able to see how much has changed as well as how much has not. You’ll also hear about the important contributions of Marin County residents to the development of the Marin Art and Garden Center.

 

Historian and fourth-generation Californian, Richard Torney moved to Kentfield with his family in 1955, and has been a favored speaker on Marin County history. On the Boards of the Kentfield/Greenbrae Historical Society and the Ross Historical Society, Richard also coordinates programs for the Northwestern Pacific Railroad Historical Society and is docent at the Mount Tamalpais Gravity Barn. Fran Cappelletti, Librarian of the Moya Library/Ross Historical Society, researches the history of the Ross Valley, Marin County, and the rest of the Bay Area.
