Stanford Memorial Church, with Hoover Tower looming in the background. Completed in 1903, the nondenominational church was built by Jane Stanford as a memorial to her husband, Leland. Following it’s destruction in the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, it was completely rebuilt around a steel framework.
