San Lorenzo Village was one of the nation's first planned communities, with parcels designated for schools, churches, parks, and several retail centers.
Located just across the bay from and south of San Francisco, the pleasant city of San Lorenzo once bore the less attractive moniker of "Squatterville." It was so dubbed because California Gold Rush miners camped between the former Mexican land grant properties of Rancho San Lorenzo and Rancho San Leandro. They may not have found gold but they could've found oysters. Oysters were introduced to the bay, brought all the way around the cape from Patchogue, Long Island on the east coast by a half-shell loving gent named Moses Wicks in the 19th Century. Originally designed as a planned community in 1944, the town featured neighborhoods of two and three bedroom homes, parks, schools, and retail centers, San Lorenzo served as a model for other well known communities like Levittown, PA.
