A Memorial Church in Stanford

Jane Stanford founded Memorial Church in remembrance of her friend, Leland Stanford. It was built in 1903, and remains the Main Quadrangle's most influential architectural element. The mosaics that cover the interior walls depict scenes from the Hebrew Bible. The stained glass windows show scenes from the scriptures of Christians. The church features the organ of Fisk-Nanney which has 73 ranks and 4,332 pipes.


Hoover Tower and Gazebo

Built in 1941, the 285-foot Hoover Tower was dedicated as part of Stanford's 50th Anniversary celebration. The observation deck includes views of the Santa Clara Mountains and holds a 48-bell carillon, the biggest engraved "For Peace Alone May I Ring." The lobby contains displays on subjects such as the architect of the institution — Stanford alumnus and U.S. president Herbert Hoover — and archives housed at the Hoover Institution Library & Archives.


Champions home

This space features both static and interactive exhibits highlighting Stanford Athletics history and student-athlete achievements. Available from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. weekdays And 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturdays (Sundays closed). Times differ on game days of football.


The Bunny

In the 1960s, the 150-foot-diameter radio telescope called the Dish in the Stanford foothills was built to test the scattering properties of the ionosphere on earth. It stays in operation and belongs to SRI International. Inside Stanford's 315-acre nature park, which also funds education projects, forest conservation and biodiversity, more than 600,000 visitors stroll the service roads annually.
