The station includes a visitor center, and on the grounds are a 1903 one-room schoolhouse, a historic log cabin and a CPR caboose. A separate exhibit hall displays exhibits about the aboriginal peoples of southwest Alberta; a Model T school bus and other vehicles; and vignettes depicting town life, including the healthcare system.
