General Storehouse

-A A +A
1916, Southern Pacific Railroad
  • (Photograph by Julie Nicoletta)

The storehouse stands parallel to the engine house and adjacent to the main tracks. This long building is considerably smaller in size than the engine house but echoes many of the architectural characteristics of its neighbor. Each gable end has a single door opening, now boarded up, centered in the wall and elevated above ground. Along the track side, a series of single elevated door openings, now boarded up, allowed the loading of boxcars. The opposite wall has several similar openings, as well as a large sliding door at the west end and, to the left, a pair of wood doors. Though deteriorated, the building is largely unaltered.
