In 1958, real estate developer T. Jack Foster Sr. and his sons embarked on an ambitious project to build a planned community on land reclaimed from the San Francisco Bay. Today, the City of Foster City is home to nearly 30,000 residents and is one of the most successful planned communities in the United States.
Foster City is unique in that its is a "living history," dating back to a time that is sill etched in many peoples' minds. It is the mission of the Foster City Historical Society to preserve and transmit this unique history to all city residents, past, present and future.
Our meetings are held on the first Thursday of each month at 7:00 p.m. at the William Walker Recreation Center
