Speaker Series: Marin Land Grants & Timothy Murphy

March 23, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

March’s Village Talk

Timothy Murphy and Marin Land Grants


Please join local Historian Marcie Miller for a talk on the first Don of San Rafael, “Don Timoteo” Murphy. His was the largest and most prized catch among the twenty-odd 1834-45 land grants. Standing  6’4” 350 pounds he spoke Native Miwok with an Irish Brogue while leading as the strongest advocate for the Marin Natives. Come learn of the larger than life character that helped form early San Rafael through his dedication… and maybe a little scandal.


In retirement, Marcie Miller finally found her true heart’s desire, Marin County History. As a Volunteer Program Director for the Marin History Museum,  she has found her way providing History Lectures and Walking Tours. www.marinhistory.org
