Welcome to San Anselmo/ Fairfax

Peaceful neighboring cities rich in natural beauty

San Anselmo and Fairfax are neighboring towns in scenic Marin County and are situated just north of the city of San Rafael. The area was largely pastoral land until 1875, when the North Pacific Coast Railroad built a new line connecting the two towns. Further development soon followed, and it became a center for silent film production for a period in the 1900s. Although the area has experienced substantial growth and development over the decades, it has retained its natural beauty and peaceful small-town charm.

San Anselmo is the larger of the two, but both towns feature great schools and a close-knit and active community. Both sit among scenic rolling hills and provide easy access to parks and nature for outdoor recreation, hiking, biking, and picnicking. However, each town offers residents something unique. San Anselmo features a charming shopping district with a small-town feel as you stroll down San Anselmo Avenue with friends and family.
