This California Historical Landmark was started in 1859. It was San Mateo County’s first American burial ground. The cemetery closed in 1918, but the poor continued to be buried there. Visitors can see the graves of California volunteers who died during the Civil War, plus other historical plots. It is a beautiful area and well worth the visit.
Built in 1863, the Lathrop-Connor Mansfield House is an eleven-room house. The home initially rested on the spot the Fox Theatre is on. Tall arches and gables adorn the building making it a lovely architectural work. The unique steamboat design is specific to the period. Today it is a museum and heritage center dedicated to preserving Redwood City history.

In one manner or another, it has been an ongoing venue for entertainment featuring entertainers such as Bill Cosby, BB King, and Melissa Etheridge.
