80 Lighthouse Road, St Catharines, ON L2N 7P5

Since 1893

Landmarks, Lighthouse, Welland Canals, Tower, Large Revolving Lamp, Igniting the Oil, Saturating the Wooden Structure, Harbour, Lightning, Tongue & Groove Sheathing

The four-storey frame tower gently slopes to a height of 16 metres (52 feet) and is topped by an ornate thick cornice creating a small lookout

The recent warm winter weather has been fantastic for taking walks along the Lake Ontario shoreline. The Lighthouse at Port Dalhousie is a good example of a lovely walk. I enjoy taking my lunch hours to walk here. The air is fresh and the view is gorgeous. There is plenty of free parking. There are restaurants in the area. I often take a cooler with my lunch, and sit on a bench near the marina. Just watch for the goose's everywhere when the geese are around!

101 King Street, St Catharines, ON L2R 7C2

Since 1848

Courthouse, Landmarks, Historical Buildings, Handsomely-Detailed, Glazed Panelled-Wood Doors & Architectural Buildings

The upper floor, originally the Council Chamber and meeting hall, contains 22-foot high ceilings - The first floor, formerly an indoor market, contains 13-foot high ceilings

The clock is believed to be imported from Europe and continues to chime with the assistance of the original weights which extend from the clock tower to the first floor. The entrance to the building, like that in Perugia, is carved in stone and features upright balustrades which conform to the slope of the stairway. The supporting columns under the copings on each side are individually carved to fit its specific location.

We went to see the Decew Falls but came away more appreciating the historic buildings, especially the former home of the Morningstar family who ran the mills. The historians provided a wealth of very interesting information about the family, the house, the work that was done over the years. One can see that all of the workers take pride in restoring this historical site. It's free, but do make a donation to help them keep up their great work.
