Blue Doors and Stairways

This old unused building stands at the south end of Tres Pinos on Highway 25. I have often wondered whether the building was used by the railroad that ran to Tres Pinos once upon a time.

Tres Pinos is the fourth largest community in San Benito County. Population of the unincorporated town was about 476 in 2010, according to the U.S. Census. To learn more about Tres Pinos, check out this earlier post that I wrote about the town.

Yup, I'm participating in another linky party. Today, it is Blue Monday, hosted by Smiling Sally. Click on the link to check out other posts that feature the color blue.


  1. Hi,

    You mentioned that you were glad I'm still "here." Yep, it's almost six years that I've been hosting BLUE MONDAY. I'm so glad you've come back to play.

    Isn’t it fun finding blue?

    Happy Blue Monday!

  2. Such a wonderful share! I love that old building with it's touches of blue! Thank you for this history lesson, I so enjoy hearing these stories. My kids often shop at the Hollister stores! Old cities and towns have such history to share. Thank you. Welcome back.

    1. Hi, Anne. I'm glad you enjoyed. Uhm, not sure if you realize it, but the Hollister stores are totally unconnected with our town, Hollister. A&F actually told many of the local businesses to cease and desist putting the name "Hollister" to the clothing they create.

  3. I enjoy anything historical and old shabby buildings. Great catch of those stairs railings. I'm a historian for a guild we are members and its so enjoyable finding all the history facts.

    1. Railings, that's the word. I couldn't think of the term so just addressed the whole units as stairways. Haha. :-)

  4. A most enjoyable story filled with touches of blue.

    1. That's what caught my eye. I didn't see the blue railings until I looked at the photo. Sweet treat.
