Adobe Station was a railroad stop on the Telegraph Stage line in Kern County, California, southeast of Greenfield, during the early 1870s. It was situated 12 miles from Bakersfield, with the earliest mention being a Southern Californian newspaper article from 1876, when Charles A. Hyde kept the station. It was reported that Stanley Hyde, "who had been in charge," was murdered that year. A hotel was operated by Peter P. Roquette in 1880.[1]
