About San Carlos:
It is a tiny town - less than 6 square miles. After WWII, San Carlos experienced it's first growth spurts, becoming a popular suburban destination. In 1944, Dalmo Victor established the city's first large electronics plant, followed soon by Eitel McCullough. Establishment of these two firms quadrupled the population. We are now home to several technology companies, as well as many biotech and medical instrumentation firms. San Carlos is the northern end of Silicon Valley. Current population: 28,406
