Menlo Park Station is a Caltrain station located in Menlo Park, California. The station was originally built in 1867 by the San Francisco and San Jose Railroad and acquired by the Southern Pacific Railroad. During the 1890s Southern Pacific added Victorian Ornamentation to the depot in order to make it appear more attractive to students and visitors to Stanford University. The station was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1974[2] and became a California Historical Landmark in 1983.[3] It is also with walking distance to the original Round Table Pizza.
