Mill Valley, California has always been a place that welcomed visitors. It is situated below Mount Tamalpais, which is supported by the mountain foothills, with its feet being lapped by the Richardson Bay. The earliest archaeological evidence indicates that there were Indians living, hunting, and fishing on Richardson Bay more than some 5,000 years ago.
Although there might have been earlier locations, but prior to some before 5,000 years ago, any locations that were located on the edge of the Bay would currently be underwater, being covered when the sea level rose when the ice began melting more than some 10,000 years ago. Any other known village locations within the Mill Valley region are typically found close to the year-round stream and the Bay. Ancient DNA evidence has indicated that native Indians arrived from Siberia either by the sea next to the western coastline of the Americas or across the Bering land bridge.
The Sausalito, Belvedere, and Tiburon Indians who lived in Mill Valley described themselves as belonging to one group of Indians, known as the Huimen. As did all the other Indians in Marin and southern Sonoma Counties, they spoke Coast Miwok. The Coast Miwok Indians were well-known for their watertight baskets that were so delicately woven and were decorated with designs of feathers and shell beads in addition to feathered ceremonial regalia of jewelry, aprons, belts, and hats. Most of these artifacts that have survived are currently located in European museums. There are currently more than some 1,000 ancestors of the fewer than 20 Coast Miwok survivors.
Along with Mission San Diego, the Franciscan Missions were arriving from Mexico by 1769, towards the north. In this region, there were the Missions Sonoma in 1823, San Rafael in 1817, and Dolores in San Francisco in 1776. A one day’s horseback ride separated the distance between each mission.
About 160 Huimen Indians were baptized at Mission Dolores in San Francisco, and less than 20 had survived by 1817, primarily as the result of exposure to European diseases. The white authorities determined that the remaining Huimen Indians and Coast Miwok Indians that were located at the Mission Delores should be relocated to the recently established hospital mission in San Rafael.
The leader who is currently known as Chief Marin, who was one of the most famous Coast Miwok, was a Huimen Indian born in Mill Valley around 1781. He both defied and cooperated with the church and the military authorities. In 1839, Chief Marin was baptized at Mission Dolores and in 1839 died at the Mission San Rafael. Located on the southeastern side of Locust Avenue, close to Walnut Avenue is a plaque that commemorates the birthplace of Chief Marin.
Around that same time, two foreigners, whose names would become significant to Mill Valley, arrived in California, who were an Irishman named John Reed in 1826, and an Englishman named William Richardson in 1822. Mr. Reed named the settlement Mill Valley.
Both of these men were ambitious and they determined that good things would result from obtaining a Mexican land grant to the pristine land in southern Marin. Both of these men applied for land grants.
Richardson became the holder of Rancho Sausalito in 1838, which included the Headlands and what is currently known as the Homestead Valleys, Sausalito, Muir and Stinson Beaches and a portion of Mill Valley.
There were some small Indian villages, that were all without street signs, sidewalks, roads, or boundary markings, in addition to marshes that were alive with fish and birds, creeks that were unchecked by dams, grassy hills that were plentiful with scattered oak trees, and groves of virgin redwood trees. It wasn’t at all surprising that during the middle 1930’s, Mr. Reed constructed his sawmill on the Cascade Creek, which is currently known as Old Mill Park on property that was once a portion of the Rancho Sausalito in Richardson. Mr. Reed had married the daughter of the Commandant of the Presidio named Hilaria Sanchez, and settled his family close to what is currently known as LaGoma Avenue and Locke Lane. Mr. Reed passed away at age 38 in 1843.
Richardson was also dead by 1856, and a man named Samuel Throckmorton, who, in 1850, had arrived in San Francisco as agent for an eastern mining enterprise and was administrating the estate for the heirs of Richardson. Between 1853 and 1854, Mr. Throckmorton had purchased a large portion of the Sausalito Rancho as the payment for a debt, and constructed a ranch known as the Homestead, which was located on Montford Avenue and Linden Lane. The supertindient of the ranch was a man named Jacob Gardner, whose family continues to be an important factor in Marin County. Parts of this property were leased to Portuguese pioneers for dairy farming in Marin County. Mr. Reed’s rancho, sawmill, Mr. Throckmorton’s ranch, some Indian villages, a few scattered farms, that comprised Mill Valley during the 1850’s when California became a state are still there.
