In the 1960s, a developer purchased the 2,000 acres of land in the Marin Headlands and made immediate plans for his new community to be called “Marincello.” Marincello was originally conceived to house 30,000 people. Soon, it was realized that the Marin Headlands was a crucial area to complete this national park. In 1972, the land was sold to the Nature Conservancy for $6.5 million and then transferred to the newly formed Golden Gate National Recreation Area. The Marincello project was finished, before any buildings could even be put up.
