History

The coastal Miwok tribes lived and fished on the land now occupied by Belvedere for thousands of years. When John Reed received a Mexican land grant to the area in 1834, the tribes had already mostly disappeared. Reed began developing Belvedere and the nearby Tiburon Peninsula.

The Belvedere Land Company was formed in 1888 and began construction in the area, building houses and roads. The town was never very large. Officially incorporated in 1896 with a total of 57 residents. It got its post office the next year in 1897.

While the railroad and the two world wars boosted development and activity in Tiburon and much of the rest of the area, Belvedere remained a small, tranquil, beautiful secret.

PEOPLE

Belvedere has a population of just over 2,000. The median income in the town is $119,551. The average age is 53 years old.
