MUSEUMS AND HISTORIC SITES

Meeting Creek Railway Station & Park

The Canadian Northern Railway built the Meeting Creek railway station in 1913 to its standard third-class station plan. Today it represents one of the few remaining examples of this design. It is unique in Alberta, being preserved on its original site with a portion of the original railway and a classic prairie grain elevator. The station has been wonderfully maintained.
