History

Corte Madera, meaning 'cut wood' in Spanish, is historically relevant to the area's development. During the rapid growth of San Francisco, the land around Corte Madera provided both redwood and oak timber to support the rapid growth of early San Francisco. As the trees started disappearing from the hills and canyons, the area evolved into a farming and ranching community. With tidal waters coming up into where the post office is now, many homes and businesses were located on the west side of the highway at elevations above the tideline. Post-WWII population pressures prompted the filling in Corte Madera's historic tidelands, enabling the east side of the town to grow into a thriving residential community.
