Marin History Opens New Exhibit: “1973: The Marin Countywide Plan at 50”

August 26 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


San Rafael, CA – August 11, 2023 – We are thrilled to announce our new exhibit entitled, “1973: The Marin Countywide Plan at 50” opening Saturday, August 26, 2023. This new exhibition at the Marin History Museum looks back over the past several decades to explore how planning efforts as well as grassroots activism and community participation shaped today’s county.

A major responsibility of state, county and local governments is to engage in planning for the future. In 1973, the Board of Supervisors developed a plan to provide for adequate housing, jobs, shopping, transportation and open space. The story is complex and includes the influence of the 1973 Marin Countywide Plan. The exhibit draws upon photographs, maps, archival materials and artifacts from the museum’s collection as well as other countywide historical societies and libraries.

Come visit us at the Boyd Gate House:
1125 B Street in downtown San Rafael

Re-opens Saturday, August 26, 2023
Regular Hours:
Wednesday – Friday: 10:00am – 2:00pm
