The campus was once home to John Martin and his family. Their home (now Residence Hall) was built in 1906. Mr. Martin was a co-founder of Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E). The family's stables were located in today's Academic Quad, and there was an orchard where today we have athletic fields.
The Katherine Branson School moved from San Rafael (near the Library on 5th Street) to the Ross Campus in 1922.
The blue spruce tree at our entrance is estimated to be over 90 years old.
There was a pool for many years in the Glen, the location of today's Student Commons.
