627 Hamilton St, Redwood City, CA 94063
Located in downtown Redwood City, the Lathrop House Museum was once home to Mary and Benjamin Lathrop, who purchasedMore land from the Arguello and Mezes families, the area's earliest landowners. It is one of the Peninsula's oldest mansions, built in 1863 by San Mateo County's first assessor-clerk-recorder. It had 11 rooms plus a kitchen and servants' quarters and named "Lora Mundi," meaning "beauty spot of the world." The Lathrop House is one of the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. It is owned by the Citizens of San Mateo County and leased to the Redwood City Heritage Association. Now more than 140 years old, the house has been home to many of the prominent individuals woven into Redwood City's history.
