Searchmont Station

Category Exploration Date Status Province / State Country
Rail Sites Abandoned Ontario Canada

History: 

This station was opened in 1903 as part of the Algoma Central Railway. Searchmont had become an important centre for timber and passenger business was growing until the Railway's changes in fares caused the volume of people departing from, or stopping at this station to drop off severely. By 2000, the station was closed, and the property is now for sale, but being managed in the interim by the Canadian National Railway.

The station was designated a Heritage Railway Station in 1995.


Personal Commentary: 

I had seen this station on a previous visit to Searchmont. After my exploration of Martin Mill, and St. Hubert's Mission Church, I just didn't have the time to stay for a longer look around.

Coming back this time was quite unintentional, but since I found myself here anyway, what the heck. I'm glad I did.
