When Father Javor founded the Priory why did he name it "Woodside" Priory?? It's located in Portola Valley. Shouldn't he have called it Portola Valley Priory? They didn't name Menlo School...which is located in Menlo Park...Atherton School.

Actually, TruthBetold, Menlo School -- and Menlo College -- are in Atherton.

Barb, I stand corrected. But that still doesn't answer my Priory question.

While you are at it, find out why the Menlo Circus Club is in Atherton and the Menlo Country Club is in Woodside.
