Located at 1285 Fairview Street, Burlington, ON — just East of the Burlington Fire Station. The Burlington Junction Station (a.k.a. “Freeman Station)”, now owned by the City of Burlington and being restored and managed by the Friends of Freeman Station, is the only building in the city whose historical and architectural significance has been recognized not only locally, but also provincially, by the Ontario Ministry of Culture, and nationally, by the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada. This is Burlington’s only surviving Grand Trunk Railway station, following the loss of the Aldershot GTR station. Now familiarly “the Freeman Station”, after the hamlet in which it stood, it was variously also signed the “Burlington Junction” or “Burlington West” Station.
