Mathias Parkhurst and Dr. Robert Tripp built the Woodside Store in 1854. Today, it is a San Mateo County Park operated by the San Mateo County Historical Association.
During the school program, students experience life in the 1880s as they wash clothes, saw wood, make a shingle and act as storekeeper.
Old Woodside Store Day
In May, take a trip to the 1880s during Old Woodside Store Day. Saw wood, twine rope, make rag dolls and participate in old-time contests.
The Woodside Store operated as a general store, post office and community center until 1909.
