Historic Notes:

One of Hillsborough’s most history-laden corridors, extending westward from the circa-1890s A.P. Gianinni estate in current San Mateo near the junction of El Cerrito and El Camino. Architectural landmarks in the area include the Western White House, the circa-1930 Julia Morgan-designed home of George Hearst, son of William Randolph Hearst; Charles Templeton Crocker’s circa-1917 Willis Polk-designed Uplands mansion (now the private Crystal Springs Uplands School, grades 6-12), and Guignecourt, the circa-1914 Bliss and Faville-designed Italian mansion on approx. 50 acres off of Crystal Springs Road in the de Guigne family since the 1870s.
