Welcome to Atherton, CA!
Located on the San Francisco Peninsula just
north of Stanford University, Atherton is home to a cosmopolitan

of approximately 8,000 through the year 2000. Atherton is
truly unique community, one whose residents enjoy the advantages
of a small town in the midst of one of the nation's most attractive
metropolitan areas, with all the cultural, recreational and
economic opportunities it offers.
