1888 - 1988

Southern Pacific constructed this station in 1888 to meet the needs of the new town of San Carlos. The use of the Richardsonian Romanesque Revival style of architecture was exceedingly rare for railroad depots in California. This style and the use of Almaden sandstone are strong links to Stanford University and its architect, Charles Coolidge, who may have designed this station. The station has served as a church, post office, library and restaurant. It was designated as a city Landmark in 1976 and in 1984 it was added to the National Register of Historical Places.
