Carman Canadian National Railway Station

With its trademark roofline and imposing presence, the Carman CNR Station is a good example of one type of station design that was planned and built across the Prairies in the early 1900s by the Canadian Northern Railway, the structure’s original owner.

This standardized Second Class design, reserved for significant regional centres, expressed the rail industry’s optimism and confidence in the role Carman would play in the future development of southwestern Manitoba. The station was an important commercial and social focus for the life of the town between 1902 and 1974. It retains its visual prominence in Carman, as well as its physical relationship to the rail track and nearby commercial buildings.

The site was designated on June 26, 2003, by the Town of Carman.

Location: 33 Centre Avenue West, Carman
