Real Estate

Marshall, CA real estate promises to be a growth area for the tiny town. As more people come here to see the spectacular ocean view and see the area as one of the few places in Marin still available for growth. There is not enough data available for Marshall to determine the median home price. But, the long abandoned waterfront cabins of Jensen’s Oyster Co. show the wonderful possibilities for anyone ready to settle down in this picturesque outpost.

Any homes here would have a spectacular view of Tomales Bay, Point Reyes Station, or Millerton Point. Marshall also has a boat launch and is a short drive away from almost anywhere in Marin you would want to go.

History

Like much of the area, members of the Miwok tribe originally inhabited Marshall. A Miwok Cemetery is found just north of the Marconi Conference Center. Marshall got its name from four brothers who founded the dairy industry in the area in the 1850’s. In the 1870’s Marshall became a stop on the North Pacific Coast Railroad connecting Cazadero to the Sausalito ferry.

While there are still some diaries in Marshall, much of this town’s economy comes from another crop, oysters. Tomales Bay is one of the biggest areas for Oyster farming in California. One of Marshall’s biggest claims to fame is as the location of the first trans-Pacific radio receiving station, built by none other than Guglielmo Marconi, the father of radio.

PEOPLE

The population of Marshall is estimated to be around 400. Most of the locals like to claim that if you add the speed limit through town( 35 MPH), to the town’s elevation (15 miles above sea level), you get the town’s population, 50. Most of the permanent residents work with oysters, in the diary industry, or in the tourist industry. The people who live here year round are friendly and proud of their small town and happy to keep it that way.

But, Marshall is becoming increasingly popular with summer visitors looking to rent houses for a few days or weeks. There aren’t many homes for sale in Marshall, but it is a great place to build if you want to get away from the crowds and enjoy the Point Reyes ocean scenery year round.

SCHOOLS

Marshall doesn’t have any local schools. All the children attend schools in nearby communities.
