History
Opened 1912

The Radville railway station now disused as a station, (located in Radville, Saskatchewan) was built by the Canadian Northern Railway along the Canadian Northern's Brandon to Lethbridge line. The 2-story, wood-frame, railway station is at a major division point on the railway line and is the only remaining Class II CNR railway station building still standing in the province.[1] The building was designed by architect Ralph Benjamin Pratt. As a major division point from 1911 until the 1950s the site also housed a railway roundhouse.[2]

The building was designated a Municipal Heritage Property in 1984. The building is now used as a museum.[3]
