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)

Next big event:  Doors Open Burlington, October 1st — at the Station!


The Station is being restored and managed by the non-profit Friends of Freeman Station.  Please consider a tax-deductible donation:  funding has been almost entirely from private and corporate donations and are 100% tax-deductible.  We are all volunteers — mostly “young-at-heart-seniors” — and no one is paid.

Friends of Freeman Station have visited a number of venues this summer, including Tansley Woods, Appleby Car Free Sunday, the Seniors’ Centre, the LaSalle Park festival, the 55+ Boomers’ Expo hosted by Silver&Gold Magazine at Paletta Mansion, and Alderfest in Bolus Park.  Visitors had a chance to see our model railway layout, get an update on restoration of the 1906 Station, and donate to the ongoing costs of renovation.  Click here:  Lots of video and pictures on the “LLRD” page!
