Cobblestone Cherry House and Brick Office
Immigrant farmers were lured to the region by the railroads promising cheap land and bountiful crops. With a little irrigation the high desert sprang to life. The fruit growers needed a place to store and sort their fruit. Starting off with the cobblestone Cherry House, a brick office building was soon added. As the orchard expanded a poured concrete Pear House was constructed next along with an attached corrugated metal lean-to Peach House. Finally, the concrete cinder block Potato House was built with a wooden covered sorting platform to complete this interesting trackside industry. Of course you could use them for just about anything. Let your imagination roam a little. General supply shed? A fireworks factory? A Pet Rock factory? Whatever you say! Any one or all of these small industries will easily fit into your railroad's time schedule.
