C. N. Station

9 Water Street
Constructed: 1906
Architect: Ralph Pratt

An example of the Chateauesque style, popular from the 1880s to the 1930s, this building is constructed of brick on a symmetrical plan, with Tyndall limestone used in the foundation and decorative elements. The extremely high pitched roofs, multiple dormer windows, and crenellated turrets are all common features of what has been termed the "Railroad Gothic" style of architecture. The station was constructed for the Canadian Northern Railway, which became the Canadian National after World War I. It served actively as a train stop until it was purchased by the City in 1977.
