Located at the upper end of the Tiburon Peninsula between Paradise Cove and Richardson Bay, apartments in Belvedere Tiburon offer residents an opportunity both to be close to the ocean, but also close to San Francisco and other major attractions in the area. But what apartment renters in Belvedere Tiburon may not notice until they arrive is that the town has a great deal of history on its own.
One of the area's most notable landmarks is the Tiburon Railroad & Ferry Depot Museum, which traces its roots back to the 1800s. According to the Belevedere-Tiburon Landmarks Society, in the latter part of the 19th century, the area became a transportation hub for both trains and ferries going through the area.
After the rail line shut down in the 1960s, it was transformed into a museum, and is now a working model of what the station looked like in the early 1900s, giving Belvedere Tiburon apartment renters a look into the past. It's the last dual-use terminal - which handled both ferries and trains - west of the Hudson River.
Across town, the historic Art and Garden Center gives those in Belvedere Tiburon apartments a chance to take in a more pastoral setting. Located in what's believed to be the oldest structure on the entire peninsula, the former farmyard has been transformed into a beautiful terraced garden, and also contains two galleries for art exhibitions and receptions. With its beautiful flowers and views of Richardson Bay, it has also become a popular location for weddings and other events.
