Welcome back to Marin’s first online interactive museum!

What is MarinNostalgia.org? Launched in 2006 by lifelong resident and Marin County Realtor Jason Lewis, MarinNostalgia is a virtual time machine.  The more visitors who contribute their memories, photos, and videos of Marin’s colorful past from the 1950s to the 1990s, the more meaningful and entertaining MarinNostalgia will become..  Please help spread the word (e.g. LIKE on Facebook) and, most importantly, don’t be shy.  Share a memory!

January 12, 2014: I’ve created a new MarinNostalgia Group on Facebook.  Click to join the discussion.

Got photos or old home movies of classic Marin?

Do you have an old photo or video of something about Marin that is different than it is today?  If so, PLEASE don’t throw it away!  It’s HISTORY!  Let’s scan it and put it up on MarinNostalgia.org for everyone to reflect upon and enjoy.  And don’t hesitate to leave comments on stuff you see on this site.  Your written memories are just as important as photos.

Please email Jason Lewis to send in your photos.

Enjoy! — Jason
