It’s Wayback Wednesday, sponsored by Jamie Lockwood, broker/owner of Sutton Group Muskoka Realty!
In this undated photo, the railway bridge over the Muskoka River. Hunters Bay is in the background.
The railway came to Huntsville in 1885. The original train station was built shortly after by the Northern and Pacific Junction Railway, which became part of the Grand Trunk Railway in 1892. In 1923 it became the Canadian National Railway.
The present train station was built in 1924.
