Greenvale Railway Station
Written by Staff Writer

The Greenvale Railway Station in Manchester is no longer in use but has been designated a National Heritage Site for the excellent example it provides of Jamaica-Georgian timber construction. The two-story building has sash windows on the ground floor, which also features recessed-panel timber doors. There are two flights of timber staircases that lead up to the station-master’s quarters. Constructed in about 1892, the building also has louver windows, and the eave of the balcony roof features downward fishtail fretwork. It also boasts a cross-shaped gavel and a zinc roof.
