A pleasant stroll along the foreshore will take you to this old railway station that was rescued, renovated & moved to it's present site. Interesting period architecture. Excellent place for sketching / plein air painting.

called in today while passing through Prince Rupert - museum closed, no sign of any activity. Building looking uncared for, dirty windows and peeling paint. Very sad.

The admission is by donation and can be any value. It was worth the time and all details are written on the stands there. It shows the nostalgia of the olden days and the way the rails tracks were built and how people lived there....More
