A Prairie Station
The C&E Railway Station (1891)

Built by the C&E Railway company along standard plans used by the parent company CPR, this is one of 11 such stations built on the prairies; several of which are along the C&E Railway line. The two story station house contained both a public section and a private section which contained the station master's quarters. The public section was made up of a ladies waiting room, the station master's office and a combination express room/waiting room. The large rectangular freight shed with a shed roof, was attached to the station along the platform. The station master's quarters continued upstairs under the hipped gable roof and contained 3 small bedrooms and a small kitchen attached at the rear. Both buildings were heated with wood stoves.
