  • We had a wonderful time. Rourke was helpful explaining the outside who knows his stuff! Bonnie gave us an amazing tour. She is so enthusiastic and knowledgable, it was a delight to learn about the Stanford family from her, and her knowledge of the mansion was amazing! A+ tour!
  • Wonderful and (free) museum, though I would highly recommend a donation, as the docents and guides here are high passionate people and know their history. Coming here on a weekday, you will get a *private* tour, as there are not a lot of visitors. As some background, this was Leland Stanford (co-founder of Stanford University)'s original residence.
  • I haven't taken an opportunity to take a free tour of the mansion but it is so wonderful to have this piece of architecture preserved. It's like a little block of history now surrounded by skyscrapers.
  • The outer garden is beautiful! The inside of the mansion is.. exactly how you'd imagine it to be. Still, fun to check out!
  • In the late 1950s I went to summer school there with Carolyn Lawrence-Lucich.
