In this exclusive art showcase to the city of Brisbane, the 160 year old 7 Mile House shares never before seen artifacts, maps, photographs, and pages from the first print of their self-published book ‘See You at the 7 - Stories From the Bay Area’s Last Original Mile House’.  The new book on 7 Mile House, Brisbane's oldest establishment and building, celebrates its intriguing history and how it came to be everyone’s favorite home “in the middle of nowhere”.  In 2004, Vanessa Garcia purchased the 7 Mile House, a dark dive in the outskirts of Brisbane and “in the middle of nowhere,” unaware of its history, the countless stories contained within its walls—and that, for the better part of the last 160 years, it was home to thousands of locals and travelers of all colors and persuasions.

 

The book is co-authored by Vanessa Garcia, and award-winning editor Regina Abuyuan, with a foreword by San Francisco Chronicle columnist Carl Nolte (Native Son).
