The deLaveaga Train Station was the last stop on a walking tour of historical sites at the June 5 meeting of the Orinda Historic Landmarks Committee.

The train station, which is the last remaining station of the California and Nevada Railroad line that linked Emeryville to Orinda, was restored and relocated to Bates Boulevard and Davis Road in 2001. The station was presented to the city by the deLaveaga family in 1999. - Sora O'Doherty
