The Southern Pacific Train Depot is located at 205 Railroad Ave. and W Prospect Ave in Danville, California. It was built in 1891 on land donated by John Hartz as Standard Station No.22 which was erected when the Martinez line was extended south to San Ramon. The first train came on June 7, 1891. Passenger service ended in 1934. The Southern Pacific trains continued to pass through town with freight until 1978 when the line was abandoned. The building was sold in 1951 for the Danville Supply and Feed store. In June 1996, it was purchased and moved 100 yards. It now houses the Museum of the San Ramon Valley and lies along the Iron Horse Regional Trail.
