The Prettiest TOwn:

Beyond the Bricks & Mortar

May 17, 2024 - April 6, 2025

Our built heritage gives our Town its charm and is the reason we have been ranked one of the most beautiful places in Canada.
These beautiful, old structures not only reflect the time in which they were built, but they also serve as a physical reminder of our past and connect us with the people, community, and events in our Town’s history. Explore the “storeys” of some of our Town’s heritage homes and why it is important to preserve them for future generations.
