  • We met the most AMAZING people at this Gift Shop. Trying to reinforce the ideals of kindness, consideration, and compassion towards others this summer with my children, all of these things were given to my son in one short visit. The nicest people ever, who went way beyond the reaches of customer service to help my son out, can be found here. The three of you (I'm sorry, I forget your names, but your faces & kindness I'll never forget!) truly made the best ending to our summer adventure. Thank you so much XO
  • I live next to it. This is Canadian history. Maintained by Lorne who is a great person and keeps the site immaculate for all to enjoy
  • This is a great place to stop along the Trans-Canada Highway to learn about this historic site where the CP Railway was completed. A good place to spend 20-30 minutes!
  • Interesting stop along the highway. Nice facilities. Gift shop was closed by the time we got there but it was nice to learn a little bit of Canadian history.
  • An interest piece of Canadian history at a good location for a break from travel on the highway
