Riverton Branch

The Canadian Pacific Railway Station was built in 1910. It was the site of much activity for many years. The station platform was crowded each evening when the train arrived in Arborg, an exciting and important event of the day. For years, the stationmaster and his family lived in the building on the job.

The ticket office was situated in the now north end of the building. The stationmasterís living room was in the center of the building and the freight room was what is now the south end of the building.The bay window was used to look out to see if the train was coming. The staircase wound upstairs to the rest of the stationmasterís living quarters consisting of 4 more small rooms. The original staircase still exists as well as some of the original doorframes and baseboards upstairs. The original bench for waiting passengers still sits in the bay area on the main floor.
