General Information

Leland Stanford Mansion
Copyright: - California State Parks
Leland Stanford Mansion
Description - Built by a businessman in Sacramento in 1857, the home was purchased four years later by Leland Stanford, California's eighth governor and one of the founders of the Central Pacific Railroad.

Attractions - Built by a businessman in Sacramento in 1857, the home was purchased four years later by Leland Stanford, California's eighth governor and one of the founders of the Central Pacific Railroad. He expanded and remodeled the home. The Stanford family lived here until 1874 when they moved to San Francisco. After moving, they used the house when business, politics or social engagements brought them back to Sacramento. The mansion is located just a few blocks from the State Capitol.

Recreation - The three-story mansion is currently undergoing restoration, but tours are available.

Climate - Gold County generally experiences warm, dry summers and cold, wet winters. Weather can change rapidly during all seasons of the year. Elevation plays a major role in temperature and precipitation. This precipitation falls mainly from October through April. At higher elevations, it comes mostly in the form of snow. Clouds can build up during the summer to produce thunderstorm activity. It is wise to pack for any season with clothing that can be "layered", ready to peel off or add on as the thermometer dictates. Always include some kind of rain gear.

Location - The park is located in downtown Sacramento at 8th and N Streets.
