The Lauder Railway Station, relocated and restored to its former glory, was officially opened at its new site next to the Otago Central Rail Trail.
More than 60 people attended the opening celebration on Saturday afternoon, which included speeches, a ribbon cutting and afternoon tea at the Lauder Hotel.
Chairman of the Lauder Beautification Society, Earl Harrex said it had been a labour of love for the small town, and had involved years of fundraising, preparation and planning.
"We found a few hidden talents in the community."
The building would preserve a piece of the areas history and share it with visitors and cyclists on the Rail Trail, he said.
Victoria University student Sam Lynch said it was pretty cool to be the first cyclists to visit the newly opened building.
"It’s definitely going to be a bragging point to my mates back home."
