Once again, I called Sausalito home for a month in the Spring of 2004, while waiting for my new house in Novato What a lucky girl I am!
I'd always heard that Sausalito had first started as a Portuguese fishing village. However in creating this page I did a little research and found differently!
Sausalito started out, as far as Europeans are concerned, pre-goldrush as Mr. Richardson's dream of his own empire across the bay from San Francisco. There was farming, cattle and the sale of water and lumber to ships that came in to the San Francisco Bay. When the Gold Rush came, the town was overrun by folks who didn't give a hoot about the laws. Over the years the town went through periods of feast and famine (figuratively), with major feast during World War II as it became a major shipyard for the US Navy (50,000 workers). Now it's mostly a tourist destination, but still home to an active artist community.
