Constructed in 1903, this depot is one of three maintained along the Butte County Railroad, a 31 mile line from Chico to Stirling City, completed by Diamond Match Co. in 1904. The railroad was later acquired by Southern Pacific and operated as a spur until the rails were removed in 1979. Prior to construction of the depot, "Old" Paradise was located near Leanard's Mill at the intersection of Clark and Elliot Rds. With the coming of iron rails the "New Town" of Paradise began to grow and today is one of Butte County's three largest cities.
