This Southern Pacific Railroad station originally opened in 1889 in the town of Sumner which was later annexed by the city of Bakersfield. It was built in the Richardsonian Romanewque style and contained a train station and hotel. In the 1930s, the station was redesigned in the Spanish Colonial Revival style. Today, it is used by Union Pacific as an office and crew change center. The steeply pitched roof was part of the original 1889 style.
