(Left photo caption:) In this 1947 photograph you see the buildings of the Navy housing on the left, the Hilarita Dairy, and the undeveloped Sugarloaf Mountain. From the 1840's until WWII Tiburon land was used primarily for ranching. The Reed family grazed wild Mexican cattle on the hills and then switched to dairy cows because fresh milk and butter brought premium prices in San Francisco, a short boat ride away.

(Right photo caption:) "Summer's here” at the new Reed School which opened in 1954.
 
Erected by Tiburon Peninsula Foundation, Belvedere-Tiburon Landmarks Society. (Marker Number 5B.)
