The Coast Miwok Indians lived in the area of San Anselmo for at least 3,600 years and artifacts are still occasionally discovered near the Hub, the spur track of the North Pacific Coast Railroad. The valley was part of the Mexican Land Grant and most of what we now know as the Seminary area and downtown San Anselmo was part of Juan cooper's grant, Punta de Quintin Corte Madera, la Laguna y Canada de San Anselmo. This land was later purchased by James Ross whose descendants still live nearby and work on some of his land, now the location of the Sunnyside Nursery. During the mid-1800's, San Anselmo was a railroad stop for San Rafael, Point Reyes Station and Tomales Bay, and the town was often referred to as the "Junction". In 1892 the San Francisco Theological Seminary relocated to San Anselmo and began the town's population growth. The Seminary facility was established to train Presbyterian clergy and includes the ethereal, castle-like buildings Montgomery and Scott Halls, an ivy-covered chapel and an hour-tolling bell tower. The town was incorporated in 1907. A large influx of Italians from San Francisco's North Beach, relocated here after the 1906 earthquake, planting grapes that thrived in the temperate microclimate. San Anselmo Avenue, the town's main shopping area, is a curving boulevard of awning-shaded shops, cafes, galleries, restaurants, and boutiques. Known as the "Antique Capital of Northern California," there are, within a half-mile radius of down, more than 150 antique dealers who attract collectors from along the West Coast. Popular events include the annual Art and Wine Festival, the Antique Dealers Fair, and the Country Fair Day. The town possesses both natural and architectural beauty. The natural beauty can be found in the nearby hills, creeks, meadows and redwood groves and by visiting any of the lovely six parks. The architectural beauty and history of the town can be experienced through the self-guided walking tour provided by the San Anselmo Historical Commission.
