Minto Heritage Plaque: Palmerston Railway Walking Bridge

In 1871, the grand Western Railway line through Palmerston was completed. Although the railway helped the local economy, the expansion of the rail yard through Queen Street posed a serious threat to pedestrians. To ensure public safety, the Railway Commission of Canada ordered the town to close Queen Street and in 1911 the Grand Trunk built a 700' steel pedestrian bridge over the yard. The yard closed, and in 1998 the town purchased the site.

A lavish Victorian bed & breakfast on the edge of Harriston, Meiklejohn House was built in the 1870’s by Harriston’s first mayor. Today it serves as a luxury retreat.
