Buy Gold and Silver in San Mateo, California

This affluent suburb is located on the San Francisco Peninsula, situated about a half an hour from San Francisco and San Jose. Although this city is home to many leading healthcare and technology firms today, it grow out of fairly humble origins. The Ohlone Indians lived on the land that was to later become San Mateo for 4,000 years at least before the arrival of European explorers. Spanish explorers arrived in San Mateo in 1776 in search of land for establishing a new colony. They established missions there and started to teach Christianity to the natives. In 1822 Mexico achieved its independence from the Spaniards. This led to the secularization of the missions and large parcels of land in San Mateo were claimed by free settlers. Grand Ranchos was established and an agricultural economy was developed. A new era was ushered in San Mateo during the mid-1800s. It developed into a stagecoach shop, and then the railroad came, which linked San Mateo with San Francisco and San Jose. Buildings started to spring up near the railroad tracks, which led to the transformation of San Mateo into a modern city. Contemporary San Mateo is part of the famous Silicon Valley district and home to numerous wealthy technology professionals.
