619 North Main Street
In 1917, the Nevada-California-Oregon Railway moved its headquarters from
Reno to Alturas and replaced the modest NCO passenger depot
with this Mission Revival building suitable for a grand Western enterprise. The glory
days did not last. A decade later in 1927, the tentacles of the Southern Pacific Octopus reached
north to finish off this romantic narrow-gauge venture.
Today, the building houses the local chapter of the BPOE.
