The Schreiber Discovery Centre & Railway Museum located in Schreiber, ON, highlights the community’s background as one of the oldest railway communities on the North Shore of Lake Superior. Built to model the look of a modern train station, it is the home of many CP Rail antiques, documents and treasures. With two train cars, both refurbished, one is called the VR car with a video of the history of both Schreiber and the Canadian Pacific Railway. The other train car is full of Schreiber’s treasures that were donated from the locals themselves keeping both town history and family history alive for years to come.
Schreiber was first founded in the 1880’s as a railway construction camp. Originally named Isbester’s landing, the town later was named after a railway engineer, Sir Collingwood Schreiber. It became a terminal for the C.P.R. The Schreiber Railway Museum is a must see for all railway enthusiasts, history lovers, and anyone with ties to the town of Schreiber!
