This gem by the harbour is full of history, bringing you back to the days when Owen Sound was known as “the Chicago of the North.”
The museum’s official name is the “Community Waterfront Heritage Centre.” It is housed inside a historic 1932 CN Rail Station and has artifacts and archives such as working train models, a 1930s CNR caboose and a 1953 CNR train car.
The museum is wheelchair accessible; however, the caboose and CN Coach 4884 are not. Enjoy a picnic over the harbour after your visit!
