The Southern Pacific Railroad Company's Depot #2 in Newhall, CA, was situated on the northeast corner of Railroad Avenue and Market Street.

Building History

As per the SCV website, the Southern Pacific Railroad Company moved its initial depot in Newhall, CA, two miles south in 01/1878, due to a lack of fresh water in the previous location. A drought in 1877 necessitated the move, by dropping well levels in that year. This depot stood at this location between about 1878 and 1963. (See SCV, "SPRR Newhall Depot, 1909," accessed 09/14/2023.)
