San Mateo, is a city in Northern California, in San Mateo County. The 2022  U.S. Census Bureau estimates the city of San Mateo’s population as 100,984 residents.  San Mateo is centrally located in the San Francisco Bay Area.  San Mateo is 19.6 miles from San Francisco, 30.8 miles from Oakland, and 30.8 miles from San Jose, which is part of Silicon Valley.



The Indigenous residents of the land that is now the city of San Mateo were the Ohlone Indian Tribe.  The Indians lived in the area for four thousand years.

In 1776, Spanish explorers named a creek in the San Mateo area after Saint Matthew. The name San Mateo originates from the Spanish settlers and translated it means “Saint Matthew.” The San Mateo area was the road travelled through by the Spanish settlers journeying from Mission Dolores to Mission Santa Clara.

San Mateo encompasses parts of two Mexican land grants, i.e., Rancho San Mateo and Ranchode las Pulgas.  The San Mateo grant was small, only 6538 acres but it was an invaluable tract of land. It ran from the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains to the San Francisco Bay and included Coyote Point and Spring Valley Lakes.  About one half of the city of San Mateo lies within the Rancho San Mateo.  In the 1800s, rich San Franciscans, like William H. Howard, John Parrot and Antoine Borel, built summer homes on large tracts of land in San Mateo.

According to the 2021 United States Census Bureau, the San Francisco-San Mateo-Redwood City Metro area has a total population of 1,553,089.  San Mateo is near Silicon Valley and has its own diverse economy with employment in tech industries, retail, financial services, health care and light industry.
