Inscription.  

The original Brockville waterfront railway station and passenger depot for the Brockville & Ottawa Railway was located south of the Brockville Railway Tunnel, near to this area from 1860 to 1872. In 1872, a new Union Station was built on Perth St., next to the Grand Trunk Railway tracks.

De 1860 à 1872, la première gare ferroviaire pour passages et marchandises du chemin de fer Brockville & Ottawa est située dans la zone portuaire fluviale, tout près de l'entrée sud du tunnel ferroviaire de Brockville. En 1872, elle est supplantée par une nouvelle gare Union, construite sur la rue Perth, près de voies du chemin de fer du Grand Tronc.
