A History of Volunteering and Community
The Tomales Town Hall may have seen more varieties of involvement—educational, political, artistic, and social —than any other building for miles around.
The Basement Wall
The Town Hall is a big patchwork of a building. Often we encounter surprises and mysteries, and occasionally make remarkable discoveries.
The First Rejuvenation
One night when the Rejuvenation plans were still a distant, unformed dream, our volunteer construction team was working in the basement with intentions of changing an awkward, full-height wall to a lower pony wall.
The Buckeye Lot
In the late 1920s, the Hall came perilously close to being demolished. In the end, feelings somehow changed and in 1931, the first of the Hall's "rejuvenations" began.
The small lot south of the Town Hall — the Buckeye Lot in honor of its distinguished tree — was not always part of the Hall’s property.
