Centennial Station Gazebo, the newest addition to the Museum of Wheat grounds has all the charm and nostalgia of a train station found on the prairies when trains were a main form of transportation. Step onto the boardwalk and travel back in time. You can almost hear the train rolling down the track and the voices of excited family welcoming their loved ones home. Bring your picnic basket, enjoy the charm, and let your imagination take you on a journey. The construction of Centennial Station Gazebo was made possible by legacy grants from the Hepburn Co-op Board and Department of Canadian Heritage, as well as community member donations and fundraisers. Thank you to Matrix Constuction for the concrete work, Warren Jeschke Custom Woodworking for the design and construction, Cori Ann Lund of Cal's Signs & Designs for signage, and the many volunteers who came out to help bring this project to life. The Grand Opening of the Centennial Park Project, including the Centennial Station Gazebo, was held on Saturday, September 11, 2021.
