Santa Fe Reading RoomSanta Fe Reading RoomLocated on the south end of town, the Santa Fe Reading Room served as a boarding house for men working on the trains. The two story building was marked by a large veranda and a beautiful lawn. One end of the main floor housed a manager and his family while the opposite end served as a yard office for freight trains.

The Reading Room was noted for the cultural programs sponsored in Canadian. They brought outstanding entertainers such as comedians, musicians, poets, and singers to the community. These monthly affairs were presented free to railroaders and townspeople.
