After the last train ran in 1967, the shoreline and the depot building were deeded to the Town of Tiburon for use as open space and a museum. On the ground floor is a railroad & ferry museum featuring a working scale model of the Point Tiburon yard circa 1900-1910. Upstairs is the restored stationmaster’s residence, 1913-1940. The Depot is the only surviving dual use terminal west of the Hudson River and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. (Courtesy of the Belvedere-Tiburon Landmarks Society)

By uncovering the truth behind the mysteries and complications that surround his life (and death), Mozart and his music will bring greater joy than ever.

The elegant room was salvaged when the ship became obsolete in 1879 and was burned for scrap metal in Tiburon Cove.

The China Cabin was designated a National Maritime Monument in 1978. (Courtesy of the Belvedere-Tiburon Landmarks Society)
