Burlingame


Burlingame is a city in San Mateo County, California. It is located on the San Francisco Peninsula and has a significant shoreline on San Francisco Bay. The city is named after diplomat Anson Burlingame and is often referred to as the City of Trees due to the number of trees within the city and its numerous eucalyptus groves. Burlingame is known for its high residential quality of life with walkable downtown areas and excellent public school system. The current median home value in Burlingame is $1.8M+ and as of the 2010 U.S. Census, Burlingame had a population of 28,807.

 

Burlingame is on land previously owned by San Francisco-based merchant William Davis Merry Howard. Howard planted many eucalyptus trees on his property and retired to live on the land. Following Howard's death in 1856, the land was sold to William C. Ralston, a prominent banker and in 1868, Ralston named the settlement after his friend, Anson Burlingame, the United States Ambassador to China. Ralston died in 1875 and passed the land to his business partner Senator William Sharon. Following Sharon's death in 1885, Francis G. Newlands, became executor of Sharon’s estate. Newlands had a vision to build estates that surrounded a country club, similar to the development he helped create in Chevy Chase, Maryland and thus the Burlingame Country Club was organized in 1893.

 

After the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, people looking to flee San Francisco purchased hundreds of lots in Burlingame and the town of Burlingame was incorporated on June 6, 1908. In 1910, the neighboring town of Easton was annexed and is now known as the Easton Addition neighborhood of Burlingame.

 

Burlingame is known as the "City of Trees" due to the number of trees within the city (18,000 public trees). In 1908, the Burlingame board of trustees passed an ordinance "prohibiting cutting, injuring, or destroying trees". Most residential properties have trees owned and protected by the city on their public right of way. In addition the city has many parks and Eucalyptus groves that add to the overall tree numbers. The Eucalyptus groves are west of the city on Interstate 280 and grow along many city streets, such as the heritage Jules Francard Grove along the Caltrain tracks north of Burlingame Avenue, following El Camino Real, and along other smaller local streets, such as Burlingame Avenue. Washington Park, with Burlingame Avenue at its southern edge, Burlingame High School at its northern edge, and the Caltrain line at its western edge is the oldest park in Burlingame. It was originally part of the estate of millionaire cigar retailer Moses A. Gunst, and some of the existing large trees within the park were part of this estate.
