History
Pescadero

A New England town on the Coastside - that's Pescadero. The old frame houses and steepled churches reflect the town's pioneer Yankee roots, although today, people of many cultural backgrounds call Pescadero home.

A stroll around Pescadero reminds you of American small towns everywhere. A few restaurants, grocery stores, and a hardware store serve the needs of residents and visitors alike. But there is a difference. Instead of having a Main Street, Pescadero was on the main road along the coast, and stage coaches brought hundreds of visitors to enjoy the famous resort hotels (now long gone) and Pebble Beach, two miles away.

The Pescadero Community Church, its steeple standing tall above the town, is a California Registered Landmark. Built in 1867 in the Classical Revival style, it is the oldest church in San Mateo County on its original site.
