According to the book entitled "Mississauga’s Heritage: The Formative Years 1798-1879", the Credit Valley Railway Station was built in 1879 on the west side of Mississauga Road, north of Britannia Road. The Railway in Credit Valley was built in communities that had no access to the Great Western Railway (1855 or the Grand Trunk Railway in 1856. In 1884, the CPR (Canadian Pacific Railway) took over the CVR and built a new station in 1914 in Streetsville. The CVR station was bought by a man named Ephraim Evans and converted into a residence.
