Huntsville, Ontario: North Bay 82 miles. Toronto 146 miles
This Heritage Railway station was built in 1924 to support the economic development of the Huntsville area. After all these years, the station and grounds are still a work in progress! Plans are underway to construct a pedestrian walkway over the train tracks to connect thus building with a nearby park and trail system..

Some of the site's former glory will be restored when a dock is constructed similar to the old steamship dock in the picture above. The dock will be used for boating on the nearby lakes.
The train station will be revitalized too, providing comfortable waiting area for bus and train passengers, and the old baggage room will contain historic displays of train and steamship memorabilia.
It's refreshing to see this old building appreciated, not torn down like many of the stations have been.
Huntsville is north of Lake Simcoe, East Gwillimbury is south
