The rich history of Los Altos can be seen as you walk the city streets. Paul Shoup, back in 1906, formed the Altos Land Co. with some of his friends. The group of friends bought 140 acres reaching from Mountain View to Palo Alto, naming it Los Altos. (Mountain View was Sarah Winchester’s land. Her late husband was the man who invented Winchester rifles.)
Shoup, a Southern Pacific Railroad executive, created a plan for this new town as a new Railroad cutoff. They needed a new cutoff to go from Mayfield to Los Gatos. Los Altos, translated from Spanish is “the heights,” was a natural name for the area because this land was the highest on the cutoff.
By March 1907, the Altos Land Company sponsored a promotional BBQ and outdoor land sale. The prospective real estate buyers purchased the first town lots at the party. The site’s location, near the intersection of Main Street and Foothill Expressway today, became the new town center.
Over time, Los Altos informal town limits gradually spread to a much larger unincorporated area. Starting in 1910, the area was served by the Los Altos School District. Today this area includes the Los Altos Hills and some other neighboring towns.
The population expanded rapidly after World War II. So, on December 1, 1952, Los Altos graduated from being a town to being the 11th city in Santa Clara County.
As cars became more and more popular in the 1960s, interest in train travel dropped considerably. The Southern Pacific Railroad, core to the founding of the town, closed its doors in 1964. The railway right-of-way became the Foothill Expressway.
