State Plaque



From the plaque:

This building, constructed in 1867 by the San Francisco and San Jose Railroad Company, is the oldest railroad passenger station in California. The Victorian ornamentation was added in the 1890's when the station was remodelled to serve the newly-opened Stanford University. The extension on the northwest was added to accommodate increased traffic generated by the establishment of Camp Fremont nearby during World War I.

Plaque placed by the State Department of Parks and Recreation in cooperation with the City of Menlo Park, July 4, 1983.
