new meme...

question...whats is one info/artifact from youre home town that has significant meaning or is famous or well known..

heres mine...

junction station...

"In 1979 the Parks and Monuments Board of the Department of Canadian Heritage officially recognized the Junction Station as a nationally significant historic site.

The Junction Station sits at the edge of the town of St. Marys, a solitary building unlike the busy railway station it once was. At its pinnacle of activity in the 1860s and 70s, the Junction saw three trains a day each way to and from London and the same number on the line between Sarnia and Toronto.

Countless passengers stopped at the Junction in its 80 year lifespan, including King George VI and Queen Elizabeth during their Royal Tour of Canada in 1939. Another famous figure associated with the Junction is Thomas Edison, who may have worked at the Junction as a night telegraph operator in the 1860s when he was a teenager.

The Junction Station was built in 1858 from locally quarried limestone and was operational until January 1941 when the CNR terminated the building's public function. In 1965 the CNR announced its plans to demolish the Junction, resulting in a public outcry for the preservation and eventual restoration of this historic building. In 1979 the Parks and Monuments Board of the Department of Canadian Heritage officially recognized it as a nationally significant historic site.

In 1993 the Junction was designated under the Heritage Railway Stations Act, reviving earlier efforts to restore the building. A "Save the Junction" committee was formed and with the assistance of volunteer labour and local fundraising, a number of repairs were made. The Town of St. Marys was successful in its efforts to purchase the building and the restoration process has moved slowly forward. Many improvements have been made, including the installation of electricity in the spring of 2000.

The Junction remains a testament to a community working together to save a historically significant building."
