Locals often refer to the town as South City, in much the same way that San Francisco is called "The City." Despite its name, South San Francisco does not border San Francisco, with Brisbane being between them. Most of the valley faces San Bruno Mountain. The city has two distinct areas: South of Portola Drive and west of El Camino Real (State Route 84), also known as "The Village," is an unincorporated area with some residential buildings and restaurants within walking distance from nearby neighborhoods. South San Francisco was once part of Rancho Buri Buri, a large Mexican land grant dating to 1827 made by Governor José Figueroa to Mariano Castro and his uncle Bartolo Pacheco. A subdivision created in 1894 originally centered on a former country club which had been built by banker James Flood.
