Station Agents | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

Built in 1898, a Canadian Pacific Railway station type 8 was built at Pierson on the Estevan Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of Two Borders. It was later moved to a farm southwest of town and renovated into a private residence. At the time of a 2000 site visit, the building stood vacant.
