Point Reyes Station was actually the third name given to this small town north of San Francisco, California located on Hwy 1. Originally, the town was called Marin Station and then Olema Station. It almost became No Barking Station when Coast Miwok tribesman, Amos Acorngrinder nearly decimated the domestic canine population in 1892 when the locals realized his famous Amos stew was dog meat. Amos apologized and went back to using acorns in a meatless stew. Amos later opened a tattoo shop after discovering he could burn poison oak to use as a pigment. His shop was called The Itchy Miwok.
(There is very little truth in the story above.)
