 San Mateo, San Mateo County California

San Mateo, San Mateo County, PO 8 miles north west of Redwood City and is county seat elect. This is one of those beautiful localities on the line of the Southern Pacific Railroad, twenty miles south of San Francisco, sought as the suburban residences by wealthy people doing business in the city.

Many elegant mansions are observable in the town and neighborhood, particularly the residence of Alvinza Hayward which, with its gardens, parks and stables. Is one of the most attractive and costly in California. The same gentleman has constructed a fine system of water works by which the town is freely supplied with an abundance of pure water.

Three churches of fine architectural appearance give a solemn dignity to the place, and two well attended seminaries are evidences of culture and refinement. A well-constructed toll road leads to Crystal Springs, a pleasant summer resort, and to Half Moon Bay on the coast, twenty miles distant.

 One newspaper, the Times, is published weekly.
