Est. 1878

At this location, in 1878, a railroad station was established for the San Pablo and Tulare Railroad, which ran from Los Banos to Martinez, later to become part of the Southern Pacific Railway, for the purpose of taking on water, and became known as the "By Run".

This township was famous for shipping more hay than any other station in California at the turn of the century.

Dedicated to the early pioneers and settlers of this community.
