Welcome to The History of Novato (Online)

Whatever your interest in Novato, please join us and help The History of Novato (Online) grow. We are supported by volunteers who share a passion for Novato history and don't get paid for any of this. If you have a story to share or an idea for an exhibit, let us know


Also, if you'd like to join the Advisory Board, hit us up! We meet in real life once in a while, but mostly we go about our business, send each other emails, share links, and whatnot.  It's cool and fun. Because otherwise, why do it?
