Inscription.

The Pugwash Railway Station, completed in 1892, is one of only two stations designed by Sir Sandford Fleming that is still standing in Nova Scotia. The station is also famous for its part in the 1957 "Thinkers Conference" where Pugwash native Cyrus Eaton used the station to transport and house international delegates attending the conference.

"What counts in any system is the intelligence,
self-control, conscience and energy of any individual."
- Cyrus Stephen Eaton, Sr.
