Senator Gardner mounted on his horse "Dick" in front of the home.
On Sunday, June 27, the Sausalito Historical Society is offering community members the chance to visit Sausalito's oldest residence, The Bower, built in 1869 as the home of State Senator and customs officer James H. Gardner after he bought the land from the Sausalito Land and Ferry Co. The Bower has recently undergone an extensive remodel by its current owner, architect Mary Griffin.
The brunch will feature delicacies from Cibo, plus coffee and champagne mimosas. (Note to the Sausalito Historical Society: You had us with "brunch.")
Visitors will be treated to half-hour docented walks through the surrounding historic Sausalito neighborhood. A special added surprise: tours of the nearby home studio of internationally renowned cartoonist and Sausalito historian Phil Frank.

Brunch at the Bower, 10:00 AM – 12:00 Noon
Comments by Mary Griffin: 11:00 AM
