Looking back

 

The current Atherton council chambers, shown in this undated photo, was not only used for council meetings beginning in March 1929, but also housed the town's police department and city clerk's office, according to the Atherton history book "Under the Oaks" by Pamela Gullard and Nancy Lund.

The building, in the town's civic center, was constructed with revenue from a $35,000 bond issued in 1927, the historians write.

Under a conceptual design for a new civic center approved last week by the City Council, the historic building would be renovated to serve as an extension of a new $13.5 million library.
