Court House At Night [#77]  - Click for previous

This is a long exposure photograph of the historic Court House in Niagara on the Lake. This limestone structure was the first government house of Upper Canada. The classic revival (neoclassical) styled building was erected around 1847 by a Toronto architect. At first, it housed the mayor's office and the market. Then in 1862 the building assumed the role of the Town Hall. It is the third and only surviving Court House that was constructed in the original Niagara District. In 1981 the Court House underwent a restoration as part of a bicentennial project. This historic landmark is still used to house offices of the Chamber of Commerce and Parks Canada. Also included is a three hundred and twenty seven seat theatre that is utilized during the Shaw Festival.
