The former Canadian Northern Railway (CNR) station at Dauphin is an attractive Chateau style station with an eclectic flair formed of a pyramidal-roofed three-storey centre block flanked by equal two-storey wings under a gabled roof and then a one-storey hipped roofed wings with broad eaves. Located at 101 First Avenue beside the CNR Park, its distinctive layered roofline and pyramid-capped tower are easily seen from Dauphin’s Main Street. The building is a provincially-designated historic site and a plaque nearby was unveiled in 2001 by the Manitoba Heritage Council.
