Historic Marin has tails of ancient druids fraternities, logging, railroads & old saloons. Olema Valley & Tomales Bay sit on the San Andreas Fault, where the North American Plate and Pacific Plate movement continues. Olema California was the epicenter of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake.

Located in the center of the Point Reyes National Seashore, Olema is totally surrounded by natural scenery and great geography. Ocean, coves, lagoons, bays, parks, trails and redwood forests.
