Olompali State Historic Park

  • The name “Olompali” comes from the Miwok language and may be translated as “southern village” or “southern people.”
  • At least one site within the area of the present-day park was inhabited from as early as 6000 B.C. until the early 1850s.
  • A project is underway to build several structures representative of a Coast Miwok village. Visitors to the park can see two kotchas (houses), one made from redwood bark and another made with bundles of native tule reeds.
  • Location: 3 mi. north of Novato on U.S. 101. The entrance is accessible only to southbound traffic from Highway 101. Northbound vehicles should continue north past the park and make a U-turn in order to travel south and enter the park.
