Original Stanford University vintage medal street sign. The sign measures 30 inches by 6 inches and is for "Searsville Rd." The sign was acquired when the university swapped out all its street signs 30+ years ago. It is a unique and rare item. Condition is as you would expect for a vintage street sign with usual wear and a bit of rust but in great shape overall. Not a reproduction. The name of the street is in raised black lettering.
According to Richard W. Cottle's 2005 work produced for the University titled, Stanford Street Names, Searsville Road is named in honor of a Gold Rusher named John H. Sears. The road is the remnant of an important early road that led from the town of Mayfield, across the west side of the Quad to a bridge over San Francisquito Creek.
