Lathrop House Relocation
As the County of San Mateo looks forward to the future, it is well positioned to make investments that will improve the services provided to county residents, provide better working conditions and tools to County staff, and ultimately save on maintenance and operations.
The Lathrop House relocation will improve public experience by providing the space to build the new County Office Building #3 (COB3) and Government Parking Structure.
Built in 1863, the Lathrop House is one of the Peninsula’s oldest mansions and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is currently located on 627 Hamilton Avenue across from the Hall of Justice and would need to be relocated to allow for the construction of COB3. The recommendation is to relocate the Lathrop House to the lot north of the County History Museum.
