Leland Stanford Mansion State Historic Park

Governor, railroad magnate and Stanford University founder Leland Stanford purchased this elegant Italianate mansion in 1861, and it served as his gubernatorial residence until 1863. Recently treated to a 14-year, $22 million restoration, the 19,000sq ft manse has 17ft ceilings, exquisitely carved moldings and woodwork, original period furnishings and a garden.
