About the Old Stone Station:
The Old Stone Station, previously known as the Alberton Railway Station, is a registered historic place under the Heritage Places Protection Act. It is one of only two "boulder stations" in Prince Edward Island, with the other located in Kensington. Both are constructed with granite boulders. The building was constructed in 1904-1905 by architect Charles B. Chappell. The Old Stone Station is adjacent to Stone Station Park, which offers picnic areas and green space in warmer months.
