Marilyn Sanders’ “Rosie and His Cracker Barrel” now available
Mar 13, 2019
Rosie’s famous Cracker Barrel
In 1962 Marilyn Sanders (1932-2018) and her husband Jim settled in Carmel Valley where they raised their family and were both very active in community affairs. Having had a long penchant for history, she wrote her history of Rosie’s Cracker Barrel in the 1990s and it became a best seller on the Peninsula. It mostly was based on the many oral histories that she collected from individuals closely connected with Rosie or his now famous Cracker Barrel which is now on the County’s Registry of Historical Landmarks.
Her original manuscript has recently been remastered and republished by the Carmel Valley Historical Society and is now available for purchase on line or at the History Center in Carmel Valley Village.
