The H&D West Hamilton Station
This small station was built by The Hamilton & Dundas Street Railway (H&D) around 1910 on Emerson St to serve the then village of West Hamilton. The station remained in service with the H&D until September 5, 1923, when the line was abandoned. Aerial photographs show the station building was still standing in 1934, but had been demolished by 1943. Today, this is the site of Aitchison Lumber on Emerson.
