Inscription. This building was part of the rail station from 1911-1958 of the Southern Pacific Line and was built by the Red River Lumber Company owned by the Walker Family. The Western Union and freight offices were a gathering place for local people. Leaving these tracks was the harvest of the mountain’s timber that went into the building of San Francisco, Sacramento, and Cucamonga. The depot was moved in 1970 to it’s present site and remodeled. The bar, now an official ECV 1911 watering hole, came from Juanita’s, a house of ill repute in Susanville.
