Community Waterfront Heritage Centre Doors Open Owen Sound

Community Waterfront Heritage Centre

In 1931, the Canadian National Railway built this station, which had a separate waiting room for women and children, to replace the original Grand Trunk station. Passenger service ended in 1970. Today, the station is a landmark and tourism hub, housing the Community Waterfront Heritage Centre. Learn more about Owen Sound’s port history and stroll along the nearby waterfront trail.
