Location Niagara On The Lake, Ontario
Site number #5814

Hidden in a dense forest next to a suburban neighbourhood in NOTL, one can find the remains of a long, gated rock wall and gazebo/resting area for passengers awaiting transportation on the Michigan Central Railway. From the late 1800s to the mid-1900s this route was owned separately by Michigan Central Railway, New York Central Railroad, and the Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake. As an early railroad it transported passengers and freight to and from ports in Niagara-on-the-Lake, but the line ultimately was abandoned. In 1973, Regional Niagara acquired the railway bed from Niagara-on-the-Lake and removed the tracks. Remains can be accessed by parking at N 43 14.092 W 79 04.311 and hiking north 700 m along the old rail-bed, or by parking at N 43 14.396 W 79 04.488 and entering the area via a sidewalk in between two houses.
