Located just to the north of Stanford and Mountain View is the city of Menlo Park, CA. Once a stagecoach stop and train station, Menlo Park quickly grew during the technology boom of the mid-20th century. The population of Menlo Park exploded, from just 3,200 in 1940 to 27,000 in 1960. Today, roughly 34,000 people reside in Menlo Park.

The name Menlo Park came from two Irish settlers who built a common home there. They built an arch and wrote “Menlo Park” on it, derived from their home in Ireland, Menlough Park. Whether they misspelled it or anglicized the name, it stuck once the railroad named their station upon seeing the sign.

Menlo Park is a fairly well-to-do community. Approximately 70 percent of the population have college degrees, making it one of the most educated cities in the nation. Incomes are above average, evident in the homes people own and the cars they drive.
