Memorial Church is closed on Monday 2/20 in observance of the university holiday (President's Day).
Stanford Memorial Church is part of a linked, complex system of arcades that make up the Quad, which serves to unify the entire complex, is more reminiscent of European public spaces than American ones, and "is probably one of the most important feature of the original Stanford architecture". It was built during the American Renaissance period and features a kaleidoscope of intricate detail that reveals itself upon each additional visit to the grounds. Here you can find additional information about the church and it's storied history.
