Due to the growing concerns over the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, San Mateo County Health has determined that all non-essential functions be cancelled. In an abundance of caution and consistent with City of Belmont policy, the Belmont History Room will be closed until further notice. We apologize for any inconvenience.

If you would like to contact the Historical Society please email us at belmontcahistory@aol.com.


The Belmont Historical Society was founded in 1985 as a non-profit organization dedicated to collecting and preserving artifacts of Belmont's history. All of our collections are stored in the History Room, located in the back of the Manor House in Twin Pines Park. (Handicapped access is available in the front of the building.)

While some of our archive has been digitized and is available online, the majority of our collection (photographs, articles, oral histories, etc) is stored in the History Room, available for your perusal. One of our volunteer docents would be happy to answer any questions you might have about local history. Belmont (McCarthy) and Heritage of the Wooded Hills (Dewing), both written by local residents about Belmont's past, are available for purchase.

The History Room is currently closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In the meantime, please feel free to browse our online archives or email us.
