Historic Sites of Manitoba: Canadian National Railway Station / Rolling Memories Museum (Fisher Branch, RM of Fisher)

The railway station in Fisher Branch, in the Rural Municipality of Fisher, is an example of the modest, standardized designs used in the early 1900s by the Canadian Northern Railway, a predecessor of the Canadian National Railway. Built in 1915, half of the building was devoted to railway traffic, and half housed the station agent’s family. Taken out of service in 1980, the building was taken over by the community as the Rolling Memories Museum.
