California Historical Landmarks in San Mateo County
California Historical Landmark 909
Our Lady of the Wayside
930 Portola Road
Built in 1912 this country church was the first executed design of noted architect, Timothy L. Pflueger, who had just begun work for James Miller. An awareness of the Spanish California missions inspired the style, which contrasts with the large commercial buildings and art deco theaters for which Pflueger later became notable. Construction of this Catholic church was initiated by a non-denominational club, The Family.
