Community Caring: Graniterock Partners with Enterprise Fleet Management and Enterprise Holdings Foundation to Benefit Pajaro Valley Shelter Services

Posted by Rose Ann Woolpert on Mar 18, 2015

Graniterock People have supported Pajaro Valley Shelter Services (PVSS) in many ways since its formation. Over the past twenty years, Graniterock People have volunteered their time and treasure as fundraisers and Board Members to aid the effort. So when Andrew O’Such, Account Manager for Enterprise Fleet Management, approached the Company a few months ago in search of a charitable organization for an Enterprise Holdings Foundation grant it was natural to think of PVSS. Pajaro Valley Shelter Services helps women, children, and families end the causes and cycles of homelessness - one family at a time.  Andrew O’Such of Enterprise Fleet Management delivers a donation check for Pajaro Valley Shelter Services to Ken Schipper and Rose Ann Woolpert of Graniterock

Graniterock's Historic Watsonville Railroad Depot

Posted by Rose Ann Woolpert on Mar 18, 2015

Watsonville’s Historic Railroad Depot is one of the few depots still remaining of the many built by the Southern Pacific Railroad during California’s glory days of train travel. The structure itself has been almost unchanged since it was built in 1895, and is a wonderful reminder of the rich history of train travel in our region. Trains and rail transport have been a part of Graniterock history since 1876, when a deposit of granite rock was first discovered by railroad surveyors as they prepared to lay track along the Pajaro River Gap between Watsonville and San Juan Bautista. Since then, narrow and standard gauge steam locomotives, diesel engines and fleets of rail cars have helped to transport crushed granite rock within the A.R. Wilson Quarry and beyond to construction sites throughout California.
