Home to Medicine Hat’s historic Canadian Pacific Railway Station, North Railway Street was once the heart of our early settlement. The CPR created a need for hotels, restaurants and services, emerging as the central point from which development radiated. Explore the roots of our community by discovering the dreams, triumphs and tribulations of the people behind the brick and mortar structures of this vibrant and culturally diverse neighbourhood. Our guide combines storytelling, historical facts and forgotten or overlooked building details, like hidden facades and ghost signs, to connect you with the past. Join us for a tour and we promise you won’t look at North Railway Street the same again!
The Railroad District Walking Tours starting point is Towne Square.
