Experience the History of Port Moody

The building that you see before you was the second station that was built in Port Moody. Considering that buildings are supposed to be stationary, this building has already traveled to two other spots within Port Moody. In 1945, the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) decided that they wanted to the station to be closer to town. So, their employees cut it in two, placed it on greased railway tracks, and used an engine to pull it to the second location on Queen Street. After the CPR discontinued their passenger service in 1976, the station shut down and was closed. Port Moody Heritage Society, who already owned and operated a museum on Kyle St, bought the station and moved it to its current location.
