Montebello Old Train Station

The Montebello train station was built in 1931. It is located a short distance from Fairmont Le Chateau Montebello hotel, and it has been landmark on road 148 for dozens of years.

Like the Chateau Montebello, the train station was built of red cedar logs, a style influenced by Scandinavian trends. It was crowded with passengers arriving by train from Montreal, Ottawa, the United States and even from Europe, as people came to stay at the famous Chateau Montebello - Today the old station houses a visitor information center celebrating the railway transportation era in the Petite-Nation Region.

Objects and documentation on the history of the village and surrounding area are on display here. The station also serves as the ticket office for the nearby Manoir Papineau National Historic Site of Canada.

It is also home to the local tourist bureau, where visitors may procure information on area attractions, lodging, and dining. The old station is a must for visitors to the region. Parking lot, picnic area and sanitary accommodations are available on site.

Address of the Montebello Old Station:

502-A, Notre-Dame Street
