I'm pleased that Stratford has chosen to preserve its heritage buildings. The city hall is a true landmark and with its height a useful reference point to orient visitors. I grew up in Winnipeg - when they built their new (now old) city hall they decided to demolish the old building - an example of urban vandalism ! Kudos also to Toronto for retaining the older building.

This was the second court house built as the original one (1853-1887) was also a jail and due to the poor ventilation, overcrowding, odour from the jail yard, eventually led to the court judges and personnel refusing to sit in the court room. By 1881 the original court house was becoming dilapidated and the need for a new one was presented to County Council. It was determined that the original site was too small for the new building so 2 ΒΌ acres of land was purchased.
