The Town of Colma, known worldwide as the “City of Souls,” is the smallest city in San Mateo County with 1,600 residents - and 1.5 million “souls”. However, Colma is more than just 16 cemeteries. Colma’s commercial buildings make a distinguished architectural statement resulting from design standards that encourage Spanish-Mediterranean motifs. Colma boasts an old-world charm all its own, from its brick-paved residential streets and ornamental street lamps to its restored historical museum and railroad depot located at its 5,500 square foot Community Center. The Police Station is characterized by inlayed arches and a three-story clock tower. Within its 2 square mile boundaries, the Town enjoys a strong tax base with two shopping centers, one of Northern California’s most complete collections of car dealerships, and a card room. There are two BART stations nearby.
