Stanford University opened its doors to students 120 years ago and when it was started, there was no Palo Alto, so I'm anxious to learn how there could be a 150 year old school in Portola Valley today?

There is not a 150 old school in Portola Valley. The school is under Searsville lake, due to a damn that Stanford refuses to remove even today. The districe, however, is that age (long before Portola Valley was incorporated). Hmmm.
