In 1900, the Southern Pacific Railroad built Moorpark’s depot. This structure became a hub of activity in town and even served for a short while as the post office. Unfortunately, Southern Pacific abandoned the depot and it was torn down in 1964. Shortly thereafter, a Richfield gas station was built at this location, followed by a bank, Citizen’s Savings. The bank building is still there and serves today as the office of the Moorpark Chamber of Commerce.
