That was then.

In 1978, architect and former Sebastopol Mayor Robert Anderson designed the Gravenstein Station building based on the historic Sacramento Central Pacific Passenger Depot, which now houses the Railroad Museum. It was built largely from recycled and reused materials collected from various other sites by the owners Wes and Cindy Vail. Wes, a Sonoma County Planning department official, collected vintage train cars and installed four Southern Pacific cars in Gravenstein Station. 

The site remained largely inaccessible to the public until 1998, when new owners developed the site into a boutique neighborhood center by adding the Sebastopol Inn and the two other structures on either side of the main building. Two of the four trains were relocated to Santa Rosa, and the remaining two were outfitted to house local businesses. A total of 11 businesses now operated at Gravenstein Station. Across the street, The Barlow consisted of old warehouses, many vacant.

 

This is now.

Over the years, the Station has evolved to reflect the diversity and liveliness of its tenants. Fifteen local businesses now thrive in this iconic landmark, representing the best of Sebastopol food, wine, coffee, fine chocolate, and health and therapeutic services.

Green features such as 10kW solar panels, a "cool" roof, daylighting through solar tubes, and a commercial composting program have brought Gravenstein Station into the modern era, and make it an energy efficient example in the community.
