The Sea Ranch Historic Markers
In recognition of the complex and varied history of this unique and beautiful place, The Sea Ranch Archives Committee has completed a project to place informative markers on Sea Ranch trails. These marker posts document our history and identify some of the significant sites on The Sea Ranch.
This contribution to The Sea Ranch 50th Birthday Celebration is made possible by generous grants from the Sonoma County Landmarks Commission, The Sea Ranch Foundation and an outpouring of support by Sea Ranch owners, current and former.
Informative redwood markers identify sites of historical significance on The Sea Ranch. In addition to the sign, a text-based QR code provides an expanded description that you can read with a Smartphone QR code reader.
The sites represent what was going on at that specific location during the second half of the 19th century through the first half of the 20th. They provide information explaining the significance of each site.
For a fascinating and complete description of each of the nine historic sites with public access, and the events and people they evoke, read Harry Lindstrom's brochure (click on the following link to view the PDF):
Printed copies of the brochure are available for sale from the Archives Committee or The Sea Ranch Association office at 975 Annapolis Road, The Sea Ranch, CA.
