Burlingame Train Station Centennial Celebration Committee

When opened in 1894, this station stood alone in an open field. It was built for passenger and freight service to accommodate the estates west of the highway (El Camino Real). The convenience of rail service invited the establishment of business and the building of homes. The area around the station became known as Burlingame Square and the development of the town began. This unique station occupies a proud place on the United States Department of Interiors National Register of Historic Places.
 
Erected 1994 by Native Sons of the Golden West and the James Phelan Trust.
