Site of the Former Village of Searsville
California State Historic Landmark 474
#474 Town of Searsville
Here stood the lumbermans village of Searsville, whose first settler, John Sears,
came in 1854. Across the road westerly from this monument stood a hotel. The school, store,
blacksmith shop, and dwellings were to the southeast, some on the site of the present lake and
others overlooking it. Buildings were removed in 1891 as water rose behind the new dam.
Nothing remains of this site.
NW corner, intersection of Sandhill and Portola Rds, Woodside.
Return to other landmarks in San Mateo county.
Please note: I have no connection to any organizations mentioned on this site.
