Dalhousie Place

West Lincoln Historical Society
288 Station Street, Smithville, Ontario

In 1884, the Ontario Legislature granted the T.H. & B. Railway Company the right to build a rail line from Toronto to Buffalo. At that time having a railway was a great boon to a town, as it furnished a link to nearby cities, facilitating shopping for the residents and transportation of farm products to city markets. Robert Murgatroyd Sr. became a provisional Director of the railway and worked hard to have it come through Smithville, rather than north of the town, as originally planned.
