Walking Tour

What the walking tour is all about

The tour, which includes nearly 20 large-scale historical illustrations that have been erected along the Cornwall waterfront, commemorates the rich history of the Seaway City. The unveiling marked the end of two years worth of work to bring the tour to life.

While passersby can enjoy the tour in any location, and from any direction, the fun begins along the Recreational Path in the west-end of the city with an illustration depicting Gleason’s Lock, or Lock 19 – an integral part of what was once the Cornwall Canal. Stops along the tour include illustrations representing the paper mill, Hotel Dieu Hospital and the Cornwall Orphanage.
