This area west of downtown and north of the Truckee River is home to a variety of building styles and types. Divided by the Union Pacific Railroad, Ralston has a northern section historically characterized by industrial use and now given over to commercial and residential functions. The southern section, near the Truckee River, is more densely built up and has many houses converted to offices, as well as apartments, schools, and churches.
