Church Street School

Opened in 1886, this school is considered one of Ontario’s premier examples of high-Victorian-designed public schools. Meet on the front lawn hourly for a tour of the museum’s vaults. Visit the main gallery where you can enjoy a lesson from the Pine Tree Potters' Guild, celebrating their 40th anniversary here. Finish your visit by ringing the old school bell!
