Inscription. On January 2, 1976 the original depot was destroyed by fire. With the united efforts of the City of Sonoma, Sonoma Valley Historical Society and hundreds of interested and dedicated citizens, sufficient funds were collected to reconstruct the building. The original depot was constructed in 1880 on the north side of the Plaza and in 1890 it was moved to the present location and expanded to accommodate the growing needs of the Valley. The City of Sonoma purchased the depot and surrounding three acres in 1975 to preserve for future generations an important era in the history of Sonoma.
 
Erected 1978 by City of Sonoma.
