The Path of HistorySimon M. Mezes, owner of the land that now includes most of Downtown Redwood City, donated a block to the newly-formed San Mateo County in 1858 so that a courthouse could be built. There were eventually four courthouses built on this property. Couthouse No. 2 photo above left, was completed in 1883, In 1903, the architectural firm of Dodge and Dolliver designed Courthouse No. 3, which was ready for occupancy when the 1906 earthquake demolished all but the dome rotunda. This building was reconstructed between 1906-1910, middle photo, becoming Courthouse number 4.
