History and Culture of Woodside
Woodside, The wealthiest of all the small towns of America, is mostly covered with redwood, Douglas fir, Oaks and Eucalyptus and is a very scenic and serene town. Almost more than 30% of the population here are seniors. So, it is basically a senior dominated region with quite a good enough senior care facilities to cater to the needs of the seniors in Woodside.
Before the colonization of the region began the surrounding regions were populated by the Ohlone Native Americans. In 1769 the Spanish explorers led by Gasper de Portola camped on a site near the present day Woodside and from then on the area began to be the part of recorded history. Back then the town was just a small portion of the Rancho Cañada de Raymundo, which was a Mexican land grant.
The very rich quality of wood and fir here made Woodside the oldest English speaking settlement in the southern San Francisco Peninsula as many English speakers began to settle here to build their sawmills. In 1838 Charles Brown built the first sawmill on his Mountain Home Ranch. By 1850 Woodside already had more than a dozen mills to supply wood and wooden building materials to the whole of San Francisco.
During the California Gold Rush in 1849, M.A. Parkhurst bought some 127 acres of land in Rancho Cañada de Raymundo for his lumber business and named his settlement as the Woodside. This later on came as the name for the town that was already being built back then by these settlers and lumber businessmen. Gradually schools, churches, saloons and hotels came into existence as a regular stagecoach service started up to San Francisco.
By the late 19th century Woodside experienced some turn of events as various wealthy San Franciscan families began to build country estates and summer houses here and the sawmills were gradually replaced by various farms. Even more so with the rapid population growth and massive urbanization during the Second World War. Along these lines the local population of Woodside feared that the rural residential peaceful vibe of the community may get destroyed by this uncontrolled force of urbanization and in 1956 decided to get incorporated to tame down this raw process of urbanization of Woodside.
Now, Woodside still retains its rural atmosphere even being closely connected with the fast paced economy of Silicon Valley. Woodside has a total of 11.7 square miles of land with San Francisco to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west. Due to its unique culture and geography mountain biking, horse riding, bicycling are the favorite pastimes of the population.
