First Sawmill in Marin County
California State Historic Landmark 207
#207 John Reed's Saw Mill
Two miles west is the old saw mill, from which the city of Mill Valley
acquired its name. It was constructed in the 1830s by John Reed, grantee of the Rancho
Corte de Madera Del Presidio. The creek waters furnished the motive power for the mill,
which was the first in the San Francisco Bay region to supply lumber.
