Stanford Memorial Church

Tonight the light behind the stained glass window was on! This is the first time in 3 visits I’ve seen the light on. It’s a beautiful facade and this is my favorite time to photograph it.

PP- Vibrance, clarity, a little recovery, USM, and resized oh cleaned up the dust spots too.

For the Historians:
Stanford Memorial Church stands at the center of the campus, and is the University’s architectural crown jewel. It was one of the earliest, and is still among the most prominent, interdenominational churches in the West. Jane Stanford built the church as a memorial to her husband, Leland. Together, Senator and Mrs. Stanford had constructed the University as a memorial to their son, Leland, Jr.

The church construction was completed in 1903. Today, regular multi-faith services are held in the church, in addition to denominational and nondenominational Christian services.
