Description & History of the Place
Railway station in partido San Pedro.  [1]

In 1908, the lands for the railway station and tracks (289,901 m2) were donated to the Ferrocarril Central Córdoba by Ana Margarita Bregen de Hanley, with the condition of naming the railway station with the name of a popular surveyor among Irish estancieros, Pedro Doyle. Mr. Doyle did 70% of the land measurement for the Irish settlers (3569/1908/San Nicolás). [2]
