Barry's Bay Railway Station Museum
Motivated by a booming lumber industry, JR Booth extended the Ottawa Algonquin & Parry Sound Railway (OA&PS) to come through Barry's Bay in 1894.
The first train rolled in on September 8 of that year. Over the past 100 years the Station has had many incarnations and currently operates as a cultural centre for the Township of Madawaska Valley. The historic building houses a Visitor Information Centre, Art Gallery and a collection of artefacts and photos relating to the village's railway history. Barry's Bay's rich history and culture is expressed through visual art, music and performance throughout the year.
