Fraser Mills Railway Station

Historical: Fraser Mills Railway Station
In 1910 the Canadian Pacific Railway built a permanent railway station at the Fraser Mills Railway Station in Coquitlam. The train was a vital factor in bringing new settlement into the area, including the French Canadian loggers and their families into Coquitlam. The railway was also a lifeline to the area by providing the residents access to the telegraph (for sending messages) and shipping services for sending parcels by rail.
