Point Reyes Station water well

A little Point Reyes Station history provided by David Mitchell.

Next to B Street. downhill from Café Reyes, an ancient, wooden structure is barely visible through the foliage. In the railroad era, this was the base for a water tower.

In the black and white photo from 1930, you can get an idea of what the water tower once looked like. In the foreground are 4-H Achievement Day participants. Photo by M. B. Boissevain, courtesy of the Jack Mason Museum of West Marin History.
