#var:page_name# cover

This stroll up Palm Drive through the historic Main Gates to the University will stop at the Angel of Grief, Stanford Family Mausoleum, Arizona Garden, and the Chinese Laborer Quarters archaeological research site. The tour will be co-hosted by the Stanford Historical Society and docents will be present at all the stops. Docents will include University Archaeologist Laura Jones and the restoration leaders for the Arizona Garden project, Julie Cain and Christy Smith.

This tour is part of the 2018 California Preservation Conference in Palo Alto, from May 17-20 (https://www.facebook.com/events/168007747186546/). Situated in the heart of Silicon Valley, the Conference explores the seismic changes facing our communities and the deep roots that bind us together. The conference features cutting edge presentations, tours of the region’s most historic sites, and a closing reception at the birthplace of Silicon Valley – the Hewlett Packard House and Garage.

You can sign up for the tour, as well as dozens of other workshops, tours, and special events by visiting https://californiapreservation.org/education/conference.
