Long before Silicon Valley revolutionized the world and introduced the area to a kind of wealth Gold Rush pioneers only dreamed about, Atherton, California, formerly known as Fair Oaks, was one of the most exclusive flag stops along the 1866 Southern Pacific Railroad line. More than a century and a half later, Atherton is consistently ranked among the most affluent towns in the nation.
If you find the Bay Area’s liberal politics a bit overwhelming and you can afford the median home price of more than $4.5 million, Atherton might be the perfect little enclave for you. Unlike most of the Bay Area, the miniscule population of just 7,000 is almost evenly divided between Democrats, Republicans and unaffiliated voters.
Atherton residents view the woodsy and idyllic little town as an escape from the hustle and bustle of Silicon Valley more than a tourist destination. However, architecture aficionados flock from all over the Bay Area to see some of the world-famous Eichler homes.
Not surprisingly, Atherton’s roster of famous current and former residents reads like a volume of Who’s Who. The list includes Fleetwood Mac’s Lindsey Buckingham, the Grateful Dead’s Bob Weir, Hall of Fame Major League Baseball players Ty Cobb and Willie Mays, Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg, Charles Schwab, child star and diplomat Shirley Temple, to name just a few.
