The Menlo Park Clock Tower has been a landmark in Menlo Park, CA for the past 25 years. It's a relative newcomer compared to the original Menlo Park Train Station that was built in 1863. The station has since been updated and upgraded a few times through the years.
Menlo Park was a train stop for families coming down from San Francisco. The wealthy families fled San Francisco during the summer to enjoy some warmer weather. As Mark Twain supposedly said, "The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco." Menlo Park and Atherton still retain many of the homes that were built for summer residences during the late 1800's and early 1900's.
The City of Menlo Park will be celebrating the 25th anniversary of The Clock Tower, a relative newcomer to the train station environs on June 19 at 11 AM. The public is invited to attend this event and to learn more of the history of the train station and the clock tower.
