The depot opened in 1941 on the site of a former winery and Chinese shrimp camp and was closed during the Clinton-era base closures and realignments in 1995 and operationally on September 30, 1998. Part of the former naval base, the housing village Winehaven is now on the National Register of Historic Places. Other portions are under redevelopment plans by the city. A portion of the beach has been turned into Point Molate Beach Park.
