  • Sausalito's First Downtown Museum Renovation of the Ice House is complete–Now is the time to Visit!

    Sausalito got its Spanish name, meaning little willow, from British seaman William Richardson. He hoped that this deep-water anchorage, so close to the Golden Gate, would become the entrance to a busy city. But the tall ships mostly rushed past his Whaler’s Cove to anchor in San Francisco. Later Sausalito’s gentle hills and sun-washed harbor became a favorite playground and retreat for wealthy San Franciscans.

    Before construction of the Golden Gate Bridge, Sausalito was a transportation nexus for trains and ferries, and in a sudden mobilization during World War II, 20,000 people a day worked three shifts building liberty ships at Marinship.

    Sausalito was homeport for many seafaring adventurers, daring rumrunners during Prohibition, and later for beatniks, poets, hippies, and artists drawn to Sausalito’s spectacular vistas and relatively rural atmosphere. Making their abodes in riotously rickety houseboats or in cabins perched on steep slopes, they left an artistic legacy to the community.

    ´╗┐VISIT US: The Sausalito Historical Society tells these stories and many, many more, in our newly modernized Museum of Sausalito History, downtown in a former Ice House at Bridgeway and Bay Street. We are open Wed-Sun 11-4.

    The Sausalito Historical Society collects and preserves art, artifacts, photographs and printed materials that document Sausalito’s history; provides access to the collection for public and academic research; and develops publications and outreach programs to inspire local interest in Sausalito’s history to educate the visiting public and enrich the community.

    In addition to our Downtown Museum, we invite you to visit our Marinship Museum, part of the Bay Model and our Offices, our Research and Exhibit Rooms on the 3rd Floor of Sausalito’s City Hall, 420 Litho Street.
