Come see the historic Barron-Latham-Hopkins Gatehouse! Built in 1864, the Gatehouse is the oldest standing structure in Menlo Park. It has been owned by the City of Menlo Park since 1968 and home to the Junior League of Palo Alto•Mid Peninsula since 1970. It is one of only three buildings in Menlo Park to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is rarely seen by the public. Proceeds from the tour benefit the JLPA•MP.
