Growth and Conflict:
Growing Nation, Changing County


Travel through San Mateo County history to see the growth and conflict of the nation reflected at the county level. Stagecoaches, railways, streetcars and the highway systems laid the framework for our cities. New cities brought immigrants from around the world. New people contributed to the economic growth and political development of our communities. The response to the immigrants was often prejudicial. Come learn about growth, conflict and corruption in the county's history during a tour of the Journey to Work and Land of Opportunity exhibits.
