Robert M. Nicol Library Doors Open Lambton County

Robert M. Nicol Library

This is one of the most superb examples of early railway architecture in Ontario, constructed in the Queen Anne style. The depot – the community’s second station – was constructed by the Grand Trunk Railway to replace one constructed in the 1860s. While it closed as a railway station in 1927, it reopened as the community’s first official library in 1937.
