BUILDING HISTORY

Marin CDC building located in Marin City, California

 

Lumber magnate Chandler Burgess built our 5,500-square-foot mansion and 3,000 square-foot Carriage House, located at 441 Drake Avenue in Marin City, California which is now the home of the Marin City Community Development Corporation headquarters. In 1907, after the original 1870 home on the site was destroyed in the 1906 earthquake, Mr. Burgess rebuilt the current mansion. The Carriage House in the rear of the mansion survived the earthquake and has been slightly restructured but needs significant repairs to be more fully used. The home included many extravagant features, including cut glass from the 1915 Pan Pacific Exposition, a built-in pipe organ flanked by stained-glass windows, exotic wood inlaid floors, several fireplaces, and gorgeous wood paneling. Purchased in 2011, our lovely headquarters provides great ongoing support of our corporation’s mission and enhances the delivery of community empowerment services.
