History and Culture of Los Altos
Unlike the other cities surrounding Los Altos it is comparatively newer in terms of urban and commercial development. It was in not much of a far away time that the city of Los Altos started to be developed into a city. Most of its development began to happen in 1950. Although the city got its developed shape quite as early as 1980, the development of the city is still going on to some extent.
The story of Los Altos actually starts in 1906 when Paul Shoup and the Southern Pacific Railroad executive bought 140 acres of land between Palo Alto and Mountain View to establish the Altos Land Co. along with his colleagues. The company’s plan was to set up a new town here that would serve as a cut off point for the railroad route between May Filed and Los Gatos. They named the town as Los Altos meaning “the height” in Spanish, as it was the highest point of that route.
Gradually some other businesses started to buy land in the area to establish commercial set ups. Eschenbruecher’s Hardware, the first commercial establishment of the town, was built in the downtown during this period. Gradually the name of the town along with some of the surrounding region spread as an unincorporated area served by the Los Altos School District founded in 1910.
During World War 2 the city underwent a rapid population growth and gradually the town folks decided to be incorporated. Then in December 1, 1952 Los Altos became the 11th incorporated city of the Santa Clara County.
Another change occurred with time - the preference of automobiles as transport over trains; and as a result the Southern Pacific Railroad, which was the essential part of the city’s foundation and subsequent growth, stopped its operation in 1964. The track became the present day Foothill Express.
The commercial sites being strictly confined within the downtown area, now, Los Altos can be seen as an affluent commuter town with beautiful summer cottages and orchards of various kinds.
