The Tiburon Railroad & Ferry Depot Museum is located at 1920 Paradise Drive, on the waterfront of Tiburon, California. It is located in the former San Francisco and North Pacific Railroad Station House/Depot, a Greek Revival building erected in 1886 by the San Francisco and North Pacific Railroad. Designed to be movable, the building has historically rested in several places, including a wharf, prior to its present location. The railroad removed its major rail and ferry passenger service to Sausalito about 1920, and usage of this building declined; it was abandoned by the railroad in 1939. It was donated to the town in 1989, and has since been restored for use as a museum. [2] It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1995. [1]

Gilbert Stanley Underwood American architect

Gilbert Stanley Underwood (1890–1960) was an American architect best known for his National Park lodges. Born in 1890, Underwood received his B.A. from Yale in 1920 and a M.A. from Harvard in 1923. After opening an office in Los Angeles that year, he became associated with Daniel Ray Hull of the National Park Service. This led to a commission with the Utah Parks Company of the Union Pacific Railroad which was developing the parks in hopes of producing destinations for travelers. During this time Underwood designed lodges for Cedar Breaks National Monument, Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon National Park. His surviving Utah Parks Company buildings are considered exceptional examples of the Rustic style of architecture, and are all listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
