The E&N Railway Station was built in 1912. The first station master was Roland Clayton Fawcett (1867-1923), who was also a member of the local Freemasons lodge, Temple Lodge, No.33 A.F.&A.M. and played a role in the planning and construction of the Duncan Masonic Temple, which still stands at 163 Canada Avenue, across the street from the E&N Railway Station.
