The World Heritage List, which is maintained by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), recognizes some of the most notable cultural and natural treasures throughout the world. Currently there are 851 World Heritage sites in 140 countries. Twenty sites are located in the United States and include the Statue of Liberty, Yosemite National Park, and the Redwood National and State Parks. Maybe – just maybe – the Marin Civic Center will be accepted onto the prestigious list.
The Marin Civic Center, located in San Rafael CA, is the centerpiece of the mid-century design that is a prevalent theme in the city’s architecture, although classic and contemporary architecture can be found as well. Particularly notable are the San Rafael Eichler and mid-century modern neighborhoods in the Lucas Valley and Terra Linda. Whether you live in Marin or are just visiting, be sure to take a look at our beautiful civic center, and take a drive through our lovely neighborhoods.
