Hello Members Friends of Freeman Station

Historic Burlington Junction 1906

Freeman Station

McCulloch Building Movers will arrive mid-morning to prepare for the lowering of the Freeman Station on to its foundation located on Fairview Street. The process will last the rest of the morning and most of the afternoon.

Our documentary film crew will be on location to record this historic event.

If you are able to drop by to witness this exciting part of Freeman Station’s second life, please do so.

We would love to meet all of you.

Thank you for your continued support. Without your generous financial assistance, historic Freeman Station would not be here today.

A Better Burlington began in 2006 after my neighbours said they felt left out of city decisions, learning about them only after they’d been made.

As journalist for 22 years, I thought “I can do something about that” and a website and newsletter were born. They’ve taken various forms and names over the years, but the intent remains: To let you know what’s happening at City Hall before decisions are made, so you can influence outcomes for A Better Burlington.

The best decisions are made when elected representatives tap the wisdom of our community members, and welcome many different perspectives.This site allows residents to comment and debate with each other; our Commenting Guidelines established in 2016 aim to keep debate respectful.
