Folger Stable School Program

As students are attending school virtually, the San Mateo County Historical Association is offering online school programs starting October 1, 2020.

Discover the Great Estates era, when millionaires enjoyed the country lifestyle in San Mateo County, in this virtual program. Before the program time, students will view a pre-recorded video tour of the Folger Stable. Then, students will engage in an online docent-led presentation where they will learn more about the property and how the land was used over time. An optional hands-on activity, creating a paper moveable horse, is also available for an additional fee. 


• Available on Wednesdays and Fridays at 10 a.m. (other times by special arrangement)

• Link to pre-recorded tour will be mailed at time of payment.

• Hands-on Activity materials will be mailed to the school; contact us if you require alternate arrangements. Please schedule tours with hand-on activities at least 10 days advance to allow for kit assembly and mailing.

• Fees 2020-2021: Fees apply to one class per program.
