Constructing a Country Dream: Finds from the Stanfords' Palo Alto Mansion
The exhibit Constructing a Country Dream: Finds from the Stanfords’ Palo Alto Mansion highlights the on-campus Stanford Mansion excavation. Through archaeological artifacts, it reflects on the Gilded Age “country dream” that the Stanfords, and those who worked for them, constructed at the Farm, their agrarian estate in Palo Alto that is now Stanford University. It is is curated by Alanna Simao (independent study).
Stanford Archaeology Center is free and open to the public. Please be aware that public, catered lunch talk events are held most Wednesdays 12-1 PM during the academic year, which visitors are welcome to attend.
