Welcome to Menlo Park
First incorporated in 1874 by two Irish immigrants, Menlo Park is known as the home to social media powerhouse Facebook, who is also the biggest employer. Once described as a "bohemian town" in the 70's, the city has grown to become a tech-driven, highly educated and affluent community.
