A Roundhouse Was Built And Left To Decay In The Middle Of One Of Northern California’s Largest Cities

There were over 200 roundhouses built in California during the rail industry’s golden age. You may be wondering, “What is a roundhouse?” A roundhouse is a large building constructed in the shape of a partial circle. The structure was used for stabling and servicing steam engines. Only a few of these roundhouses are still (partially) standing to this day, like the Bayshore Roundhouse near San Francisco. Long abandoned and left to decay, what remains of this old roundhouse is an eerie sight.

Please note that the Bayshore Roundhouse is on private property and investigating it is considered trespassing! The following information about this historic destination is for entertainment purposes only.
