Verona is an unincorporated community in Alameda County, California. It is located on the Western Pacific and the Southern Pacific Railroads 2.25 miles (3.6 km) north of Sunol,[2] at an elevation of 315 feet (96 m).[1]


The name is from the estate of Phoebe Hearst La Hacienda del Pozo de Verona which was located nearby and the station at Verona was the nearest to the estate.[2]

Verona shelter[edit]

A small shelter named Verona was built in 1901. It served the local farmers in the area and had a nearby picnic area. The station was retired in March 1939.[3]
