National Register #96001535
Southern Pacific Railroad Depot
Railroad Avenue at Fulton Lane
St. Helena
Built 1895

The St. Helena Southern Pacific Railroad Depot embodies the traditional pattern book architectural style and construction techniques of a late 19th century Southern Pacific depot in California.

It is the only intact example of a Southern Pacific depot in Napa County. The Yountville Southern Pacific Depot was converted into tourist shops and only the two-story section remains. The freight and loading areas were demolished in the 1970s.

The Calistoga Depot did serve as a Southern Pacific depot, but because it was built by the Napa Valley Railroad around 1868 before the founding of Southern Pacific, the Calistoga Depot has none of the characteristic of a Southern Pacific depot.
