For prospective homebuyers considering the North Los Altos neighborhood — loosely bounded by Foothill Expressway, El Monte Road, El Camino Real and Adobe Creek — perhaps the best place to start is the Los Altos History Museum. Located on S. San Antonio Road next to the library and open Thursday through Sunday from noon to 4 p.m., the museum is a great resource for community history and to get an idea of what Los Altos looked like as a budding town at the turn of the 20th century.
