Historic Sites of Manitoba: Emerson CNR Station (Emerson, Municipality of Emerson-Franklin)

A wooden railway station that once stood at Emerson, on the CNR Emerson Subdivision in the Municipality of Emerson-Franklin, was built in 1923. Closed by the railway in 1979, it was sold at auction in 1989, purchased for $3,000 and moved to the vicinity of Woodlands where it was renovated into a private residence. Sometime between 2013 and 2015, it was moved to the Grosse Isle Museum where it is used by the Prairie Dog Central Railway.
