Atherton

San Mateo County/Silicon Valley

Atherton is a small, rural, and residential community, with no industrial land-use base. Native live oaks, white oaks, bays, redwoods, cedars, pines, and other ornamental trees cover the six square miles of town. Throughout the years, the Town of Atherton has preserved its character as a scenic, rural, thickly-wooded, residential area, with abundant open space. Atherton is also home to Menlo College, a small mall private undergraduate college that focuses on the practical arts of business in the entrepreneurial economy. Click here to learn more about Atherton
