The HP Garage and its collection

The HP Garage

The HP Garage is a private museum where the company Hewlett-Packard (HP) was founded. It is located at 367 Addison Avenue in Palo Alto, California . It is considered to be the "Birthplace of Silicon Valley ". In the 1930s, Stanford University and its Dean of Engineering Frederick Terman began encouraging faculty and graduates to stay in the area instead of leaving California, and develop a high-tech region. HP founders Bill Hewlett and David Packard are considered the first Stanford students who took Terman's advice. The garage has since been designated a California Historical Landmark and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places . Though not open for public tours, the property can be viewed from the sidewalk and driveway.
