  • 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!
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • No Photography Allowed in the house, so leave your cameras at home. The place is okay if you just want a brief encounter with freemasonry, but all and all its a mansion built by the Californian elites of the late 1800s. It's the kind of place you go to once, and that's bout it. It's nicer to walk around the garden and leave.
  • In the late 1950s I went to summer school there with Carolyn Lawrence-Lucich.
