Due to San Benito County's COVID-19 Shelter in Place Directive, the Historical Park Visitor Center, and San Juan Pacific Model Railroad Exhibit will be closed until further notice.  We look forward to seeing visitors again at these facilities when the situation is resolved.

Outdoor walks through the Historical Park, Village and upper trails are allowed and are a great way to get outdoors and enjoy the Park!

Please WEAR YOUR MASK and MAINTAIN SOCIAL DISTANCING when you encounter other visitors.

After 18 years of wonderful memories being located at Bolado Park, the Railroad Club accepted an offer from the San Benito County Historical Society to use the Ferrando House in the San Benito County Historical Park as a permanent home. 

After cleaning and remodeling the Ferrando House, the old train layout was dismantled and used to build the new layout which was begun in 2015 and continues to be a work in progress with tracks that weave in and out of three rooms.  The exhibit is available for viewing on Saturdays from 11 am to 3 pm.
