Lafayette Depot

Lafayette's 40' x 22' depot was originally a temporary structure from Newton before they built the brick building which lasted until the end. It was disassembled at Newton and brought to Lafayette in 1873.

A small shelter station replaced the larger station around the 1940s. Taber says the agent was discontinued 1936-42.

Nearby Industries: Feed mill, Coal pocket, Alderney Creamery (demolished in 1938).
