CNR Railway Station
This railway station (WDM-1973-NB-13906 ) was built in 1913 in Prince as part of the Canadian Northern Railway (CNR) expansion from North Battleford to St. Walburg. In 1928, the station was upgraded to add station agent living quarters to the existing freight and passenger shelter. The station was in use until 1953. After its closure, the building caretaker, Martin Zary, continued to live in the building with his family until he died in 1957.
The building was then left empty until 1967 when it was moved to the WDM. In partnership with CNR, the WDM renovated the interior residential areas between 1967 and 1970. The freight and passenger shelter is in its original condition.
Based on CNR station pattern 100-4. The 1928 upgrade used CNR station pattern 100-220.
This style of building was commonly used in communities of under 100 people.
