In 1890 the Canadian Pacific Railway decided to extend the line from Woodstock to Windsor, in part due to the vast deposits of salt being mined in Detroit. The first CP Station, adjacent to what was then the Canadian Salt Company, was located in the vicinity of Crawford Avenue and Riverside. The CPR Station that burned in 1966 was built in 1911.
