Marshall, California Photos and Information



Marshall is located in Marin County in northern California, approximately 5 miles from Bodega Bay. It was named for the Marshall brothers, 19th century settlers who brought dairy cattle to the region. It's not clear that Alexander, David, Hugh, James and Samuel Marshall started the dairy industry here but they left their mark, nevertheless. The dairy industry and cattle are noticeable on the farms and open land Sonoma County is known for.



Major destinations not far from Marshall include the San Francisco Bay area and Napa, Sonoma and Mendocino wine country. As you drive past this bend in the road and notice the beautiful Tomales Bay and hills, you also may see oysters and clams sold at roadside companies. If you love the soft-shelled food, stop in Marshall to enjoy local barbecue prepared dishes. Tomales Bay is where nearly half of California's oysters are raised.
