The Churchill Railway Station, 1992

The station was built in 1929-30 to serve as the terminus of the Hudson Bay Railway, primarily to move grain to the new port on Hudson Bay, and illustrates the railway’s crucial role in the development of northern Manitoba. The building was declared a Heritage Railway Station in 1992. It has since been restored by Parks Canada.
