Historic Sites of Manitoba: Canadian Pacific Railway Station (Roland, RM of Roland)

In 1906, a branch line of the Great Northern Railway was constructed through Roland in the Rural Municipality of Roland. Purchased by the Canadian Pacific Railway in August 1926, the original station was enlarged with an office and second floor. The building was sold and moved away in 1970 and the CPR Carman Subdivision between Carman and Kronsgart was abandoned on 17 November 1975. A commemorative plaque remains at the site.
