About the GHRA
Canadian Pacific Priory station, on the Guelph Junction Railway. This
building was the first permanent building in Guelph, and served for
several years as the CPR station. This photo shows the priory in use
as the station, sometime during the 19th century. This is now the site of
the River Run Centre.
