Over 40,000 commuters drive by the historic John Marsh House on Marsh Creek Road twice a day en route to and from their jobs in the East Bay. It is amazing how many of these individuals do not recognize the property for lack of signage.
The State Parks and Recreation Department possesses a sign that for many years was set up near the house. I have no idea why it was removed, but I, for one, would like to see it placed in view once more.
There is significant city, state and private donation money being spent on the park's General Plan and stabilizing the Stone House. Setting up the existing sign, which identifies the John Marsh House, would be a good step for civic pride, acknowledge our founding pioneer, and promote the future state historic park.
