Old St. Hilary's Landmark


The deconsecrated Catholic Mission is surrounded by a rare wildflower preserve. One of the few carpenter Gothic churches to survive in its original setting, the redwood structure was built in 1888 to meet the spiritual needs of the new town of Tiburon established with the advent of the railroad.

The original window above the entry depicts St. Hilary, patron of scholars and namesake of Hilarita and Ylaria Reed, heirs to the Mexicam land grant. The chandeliers are electric replicas of the coal- oil lamps. The bell on the tower is rung to celebrate weddings.

The old wood, arched ceiling and size combine to provide perfect acoustics. There is a small concert grand piano.
