Campus Map with Lane History Corner

Lane History Corner is at 450 Jane Stanford Way, where it meets Palm Drive. It is part of the old, main quad and faces out onto the Palm Drive oval and the big lawn.


Parking can be tricky and time-consuming to find, especially because of ongoing construction. At mid-day, I’d allow 20 minutes to hunt for a meter. Really.

Please check parking signs carefully and note that parking is monitored Monday - Friday, 8am. - 6pm. After 6 PM weekdays and all day on weekends there is often free parking on Palm Drive.
