The Tres Pinos Branch of the Southern Pacific Railroad began train service to Hollister on July 13, 1871. Train service was a main reason the population grew from 300 in 1870 to over 2000 in 1873. Besides passenger service, major commodities shipped have been included hay, produce and beer. The final passenger excursion occurred on October 30, 1955. The depot, orignally constructed in the late 1860's, was fully restored by the Rodriguez family in 1991.
