People have lived in NIAGARA-ON-THE-LAKE for over 10,000 years and has the distinction of being the most historic town in Ontario. Many wonderful features make the town unique with a number of historic sites, award-winning wineries, first class hotels and Bed& Breakfast guest houses, superb restaurants and shops and the renowned Shaw Festival Theatres.
Hans and I really enjoyed strolling through the town along Queen Street with all its colorful shops. We also explored nearby Fort George and toured Inniskillin Winery. So if you are ever in the Niagara Falls region, be sure not to miss this historic gem.
This is the third and only surviving Court House erected for the former Niagara District . Constructed between 1846 and 1848, it was designed by a prominent Toronto architect in neoclassical style favoured for 19th century public buildings. Located on Queen Street, the NIAGARA DISTRICT COURT HOUSE or Le Palais de Justice du District de Niagara, became the Town Hall in 1862. Restored in 1981as the town's bicentennial project, the building houses a refurbished Lord Mayor's Chambers, the Chamber of Commerce and Parks Canada offices. During the Shaw Festival season, an intimate 327 seat theatre operates from within the Court House.
Popular attractions unto themselves, the shops of the picturesque Heritage District of Niagara-on-the-Lake are located in well-preserved buildings dating back to 1817. The grand boulevard of QUEEN STREET anchors this shopping area, lined with gorgeous floral plantings, historic sites and the three theatres that house the Shaw Festival. Queen Street and the adjoining side streets and courtyards, contain small, individually owned businesses where the merchandise is unique, offering everything from fashionable attire, jewellry, art and giftware to local wines and Niagara culinary products
