Buried Treasure in Fairfax / San Anselmo
Per Michelle Sargeant Kaufman, Director of the Marin History Museum — some historical facts and lore about Marin.
How many of you knew that:
- Marin County was the original site for the United Nations.
- Randolph Hearst initially built his “castle” in Sausalito, but he was ostracized from society because he built it for his girlfriend – so he moved everything to San Simeon.
- There is a buried treasure somewhere in the San Anselmo-Fairfax area. Domingo Sais, originally granted that land did not believe in banks and buried all of his money in a strong box, but had a heart attack on his ride back and died before he told anyone where he put it – it is still out there.
