City of Mountain View

In 1888, at the request of local residents, the Southern Pacific Railroad built a depot at Mountain View Statin at a cost of $4,000. The second floor was used as living quarters for the station agent.
By 1892, ten passenger trains stopped daily at the station. Today the number has increased to 76 trains per day. By the late 1950's, the depot was in serious disrepair and in 1959 the Southern Pacific Railroad has it removed.
Today's modern recreation of the original train station building was dedicated on the City's Centennial - November 7, 2002.
