satellite view of the village of Nicasio, CA, built around a baseball diamond

Driving the back way from our studio on the Sonoma Coast to Marin County to install a project over the past few months, I’ve fallen in love with the village of Nicasio. Its tiny town center consists of a church, a general store, a roadhouse/bar, post office, Druid’s Hall, real estate office, and a few houses, all surrounding a baseball diamond that comprises the Town Square. Nestled in the San Geronimo Valley, Nicasio connects the main drainages of Nicasio Creek and its tributaries up to the ridgelines. The buildings are all authentic examples of late 19th century rural American vernacular, all the more poignant when the focal point is a well-maintained baseball diamond.

  1. Warren and I got married in that very church on May 16, 1992. In fact, we had a baseball game in the town square the night before (W hit 3 home runs) followed by the rehearsal dinner at the lively Rancho Nicasio. Darn cute town alright.

  2. Thanks Diana- great to hear from you! So glad to know you two were married in Nicasio and share my warm feelings for the town. Keep in touch! Scott
