Trent Valley Archives presents a brand-new walking tour , Cathedral Precinct, that focuses on the area bounded by Park & Stewart Streets, and Murray & Hunter Streets. The block between Rubidge and Reid deserves special consideration because of its three churches and the intertwined history of the nearby buildings.
There are also numerous area houses which will be profiled on the tour. Fine vintage stone dwellings such as Hutchison House, the Eastland House and the Ridley House will be described as are the Queen Anne-style house on Stewart St. and the Second Empire duplex with its mansard roof which sits across the street. Of particular interest will be the Strickland House on Hunter and Downie Sts.
The “Cathedral Precinct” tour will begin and end at the Eastland House, at Hunter and Stewart. Elwood Jones, TVA’s archivist will lead the tour assisted by Don Willcock, noted historian and raconteur.
TVA takes the safety of our attendees and volunteer guides very seriously by adhering to appropriate physical distancing throughout the tour. While everyone is welcome, we encourage you to enjoy the tours with members of your circle. This tour runs rain or shine, so please dress appropriately for the weather.
