Once known as the "Sleepy Hollow of California," Menlo Park did not take off as a community until after World War II. Despite its proximity to Stanford University, Sand Hill Road venture capitalists, dot-com startups and research institutions, "Menlo Park still at least seems like a small town," note Michael Svanevik and Shirley Burgett in their book "Menlo Park: Beyond the Gate."

Landowners first incorporated back in 1874 but chose to "disincorporate" a mere two years later. It wasn't until 1927 that today's city was established.

Menlo Park now offers a suburban enclave with many urban amenities: from a vibrant downtown and strong public school district to plenty of parks and recreational facilities.
