Lot 1-4- #1240- Per Historical Walking Tour Booklet, the First CPR Station was moved here in 1927. A Brick veneer was added. It was used as an Armoury for the South Saskatchewan Regiment. In 1942 the Elks Club bought it, then sold it to the Mercury. Andrew King owned the Mercury at that time. Estevan Mercury were located in a building on the corner here, before moving to their new building across from the Curling Rink, on Souris Ave.. I think this building burnt down, but will keep researching that. I know one of the Mercury buildings burnt down. The Fast Gas Gas Station in business today. (2017)
