John Marsh Historic Trust

One of the early residents of John Marsh’s Stone House was Marco B. Ivory. A former Sheriff of Contra Costa County (from 1871 to 1875), Ivory was a renowned ranch manager and livestock breeder. He became the manager of the Los Meganos Rancho in 1877, working for The Clay Street Bank of San Francisco, which controlled the property after it went bankrupt in the decades after Marsh’s murder in 1856.

The John Marsh House is not open to the public.

Brentwood is one of the fastest-growing cities in the nine-county Bay Area and offers a strategic location that connects: the SF Bay Area, Central Valley, Tri-Valley, and Sacramento Delta.
