Neuralia, CA


Neuralia, CA is a place that many have not heard of despite the nearby well-traveled road baring its name. Neuralia was formed as a direct result of the Southern Pacific Railroad that laid track here in the late 1880’s, the name was derived from “new railroad”. A Post Office operated here from 1914-1916.

The few ruins that remain are concrete foundations, one of which is very large (likely the train depot). During my walk through of the area I stumbled upon the ruins of a bottle building, with some bottles still in tact within the concrete.

If you have any further information about Neuralia, please contact me.
