Nanton Grain Elevators
Nanton is a town in southern Alberta, Canada. It is located south of Calgary at the junction of Highway 2 and Highway 533. Nanton is known primarily for three distinct features:
The first being its famous Lancaster museum, second being its high number of antique shops, and third being its two beautiful fully-restored Grain Elevators on north-bound Highway 2.
I actually think that Wikipedia missed out another thing that Nanton is famous for...It is home to Canada's largest garden railway!! I visited it and was impressed, even more so knowing that they deconstruct it in the autumn and lay it all out again diffently the following year! Link Below to a youtube video, if you want to check it out in action!!
I personally loved Nanton, it was one of my favourite stops on my trip.
