The History of San Anselmo

A sprinkling of artifacts discovered near the Hub of San Anselmo suggest that the spot where the town now sits has long been a crossroads, if not a center of activity, since the days when the Coast Miwok roamed the surrounding oak-studded hills and fished the fresh waters of San Anselmo Creek.

The Town of San Anselmo has a rich history of success and growth which has been influenced by several events, including:
  • The beginnings of the North Pacific Coast Railroad
  • The addition of the San Francisco Theological Seminary
  • The opening of the Golden Gate Bridge
