The land that Stanford Redwood City now occupies has a rich history.
As a tribute to those who used this property prior to Stanford's arrival, a series of historic plaques are installed on campus to commemorate just some of the important uses this land has seen throughout history. You'll find the plaques along Community Court, just off Broadway Avenue between University and Discovery Halls.
Each plaque briefly covers a period of time—from when dinosaurs roamed to the present day. Here, you'll find the same content shared on the historic plaques.
