1907-1908The Canadian National Railways (Intercolonial Railway) Station is a one-and-a-half-storey, sandstone railway station, built in 1907-1908.This railway station represents the brief, early-20th-century period of prosperity and expansion of the Intercolonial Railway before its decline and absorption into the Canadian National Railways. It typifies turn-of-the-century Intercolonial Railway stations in its generous scale and stone construction. It is distinguished by its use of local sandstone which gives it its rich textures and colouration.
In 2012 Via Rail closed the station.
