Point Richmond.....once an island on San Francisco Bay, is now a neighborhood of Richmond, California .  Point Richmond is that city's birthplace and today is it's "old town".  The Point Richmond History Association was founded in 1979 by Donna Roselius and is dedicated to promoting awareness of the community's exciting and colorful history. To this purpose, we maintain a small museum on the downtown Point Richmond Triangle that is housed by the oldest commercial building in Richmond.  The little museum was saved from destruction and moved to its current location in 1990.  It is open on Thursdays 11:30 am to 2:00 pm and Saturdays 11:30 am to 2:00 pm. We invite you to join our organization, with your membership you will receive a subscription (five issues) to "This Point...in time", our entertaining and informative newsletter.  Membership categories include Senior (65 or older) ($15.00/year), Single ($20.00/year), Family ($25.00/year), History Preserver ($50.00) or History Maker ($100.00/year). Checks should be made to the Point Richmond History Association and mailed to Pam Wilson, 521 Western Drive, Point Richmond, CA 94801.
