The famed Menlo Park gate, erected in the 1850s by Dennis J. Oliver and Daniel C. McGlynn, immigrants from Menlough, County Galway in Ireland, was destroyed by a speeding car in 1922. The two purchased 1,700 acres on the Peninsula that later became known as Menlo Park. Photo courtesy of the Menlo Park Historical Association.
