San Rafael P O
Marin County an incorporated town and county seat, is situated in a small valley of the same name on the line of the North Pacific Coast Railroad, 15 miles north-west of San Francisco. It is a beautiful and picturesque spot, surrounded by an amphitheater of hills, except at the foot of the valley, where it opens to the bay. It is nicely laid out with streets lined with shade trees, and the many fine residences are adorned with delightful and tastily laid-out grounds. Being so completely sheltered, it is free from wind, dust, and fog, and has an almost semi-tropical climate. It is but a short and pleasant ride from San Francisco, and the rare advantages it offers for a suburban home have been availed of by many of the business men of that city. Its healthful climate also makes it an excellent resort for invalids, and its park, gardens, and romantic nooks and retreats make it an attractive place for the pleasure-seeker.

Farming and dairying are carried on in the vicinity, but not extensively. The town has a population of about 2,500 inhabitants. Three public schools are maintained, having an attendance of about 300 scholars. The secret and benevolent societies are the Masons, Odd Fellows, United Workmen, Legion of Honor, and Good Templars. The religious denominations represented are the Episcopal, Presbyterian, Methodist Episcopal, and Roman Catholic.

The town contains a handsome court-house, erected at a cost of $70,000. It is surrounded with grounds tastily laid out with trees, shrubbery, lawns, and tropical plants. The fire department consists in apparatus of one hand engine, a hook and ladder truck, and two hose carts. The San Rafael Gas Co. supplies the town with light, and excellent water is distributed by the Marin County Water Co.

Communication is maintained with San Francisco four times a day, and with Duncan's Mills daily by the trains of the North Pacific Coast R. R., and twice a day with Cloverdale and intermediate points by the trains of the San Francisco and North Pacific R. R.
