“The namesake of Stanford University”
Originally planned as the site for Leland and Jane Stanford's grand mansion, the family changed their plans following the death of their young son, Leland Junior. Instead, they built a university that they named after him, and built a tomb near their recently completed cactus garden. Leland and Jane Stanford were later buried in the tomb alongside their son. The mysteries surrounding Jane's death by strychnine poisoning have never been completely solved.
