We're honoring our presidents today! Abe is our favorite, but we're a bit biased.

At just the right angle, the Chinese Arch along the Promontory Trail Auto Tour beautifully framed the rolling Utah mountains beyond.

When Leland Stanford's elaborate Italianate mansion at California/Powell was built c.1874, it was the largest private home in California, and the first of the Big Four homes built on Nob Hill. Amasa Leland Stanford, a merchant from NY became president of the Central and Southern Pacific Railroads, and served as Governor of California prior to moving to San Francisco. With his wife Jane, he founded Stanford University in 1885 after the death of their only son. He was elected to the United States Senate the same year. The mansion burned in the 1906 fire a year after Jane's death. 📷: Bancroft Library, U.C. Berkeley
