The Petaluma and Santa Rosa Railway Power House is a historic building in Sebastopol, California, U.S.A., built to serve the Petaluma and Santa Rosa Railroad, an electric interurban railway of Sonoma County. It is also known as the Hogan Building and the P&SR Substation.

The Petaluma and Santa Rosa Railway Power House is located on Petaluma Avenue in Sebastopol, adjacent to the P&SR Depot on South Main Street. The building has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Description[edit]

The Petaluma and Santa Rosa Railway Power House is a single story building constructed of locally quarried stone. It is L-shaped, with a tile roof. Since the dissolution of the railway company, the building has housed a number of private business, including a series of brew pubs. The current owner, Hopmonk Tavern, removed a non-historical deck surrounding the east and west ends of the building, returning it to its historical profile.[citation needed]
