Restoring the 1906 Burlington Junction Station ("Freeman Station")
(Prints of most of the art work shown above available for donation to Friends of Freeman Station.)
We’re making progress!  The historic 1906 railway Station is being restored and managed by the non-profit FOFS volunteers — and no one is paid.*  Funding has been mostly from private and corporate sources, and your donations are 100% tax-deductible.  Please visit our “Events,” “FAQ’s,” and “History” pages, above.
* Friends of Freeman Station in agreement with the City of Burlington.  Now permanently relocated at 1285 Fairview Street, Burlington, ON — just East of the Burlington Central Fire Station)
