Homestead Valley Annual Meeting
Holiday Gathering
Winter Holiday Celebration

The Community Association hosted Homestead Valley residents at the Community Center on December 7th to celebrate the annual Winter Holiday Celebration. The evening included a potluck, crafts for kids, holiday treats and lots of great community time together! Thanks to everyone who joined us and for sharing a potluck feast of holiday food and desserts.

A very special "Thank You" to Rachel Carlin for coordinating this always fun annual community event!  Thanks also to Boriana Fackler, Lindsey Tucker, Christian & Dena Thompson, Leslie Dixon, Gwen Gallagher,  David Ross, and Summer Shapiro.  
Homestead Valley Vignettes by Chuck Oldenburg
Belvedere Reservoir
In 1904, the North Coast Water Company (NCWC) agreed to supply water to the Belvedere Land Company's residential development on Belvedere Island. The source would be the north fork of Laguna Creek, a tributary of Fern Creek in the Muir Woods drainage area. In 1905 NCWC constructed a 12,000 ft. pipeline on what is now called the "Pipeline Trail" from the source to a new reservoir located above the corner of Sequoia Valley Rd. and Edgewood Ave. From there, a much longer pipeline went to storage facilities on Belvedere Island. In 1912, NCWC and other Marin water companies were incorporated into the Marin Municipal Water District. MMWD expanded and integrated its supply system with new reservoirs on Mt. Tamalpais. In 1967 MMWD replaced the Belvedere Reservoir with a nearby five million gallon steel tank. The old pipeline on "Pipeline Trail" was abandoned.
