The Miami Railway Station Museum holds a special place in my heart. My family immigrated to Canada in 1882 and settle in Miami, Manitoba. It was a hard life, scarce supplies, much sickness and despair, and yet my family survived and grew. Many of my relatives worked for the railway, helped build the railway and several of them, my great grand parents included, are buried nearby in the Miami cemetery.
