Belleville City Hall Doors Open Belleville

Belleville City Hall

Constructed in 1872-73 by architect John D. Evans (the builder was John Forin) as Belleville’s market building and town hall, this attractive structure – with its tall clock tower – has dominated the downtown landscape for 146 years. Architect Bill White’s imaginative renovations (1987-88) preserved many original interior architectural features, while adding 929 square metres (10,000 square feet) of new space.

Signal Brewery Doors Open Belleville

Signal Brewery

Henry Corby founded Corbyville in the early 1830s and opened a bakery. But, by 1859, a distillery was incorporated (called Alma Mills after his late wife), which quickly eclipsed the mill operations. Now, the building has been revitalized as a local brewery. Signal Beer is keeping the heritage of these buildings alive with great beer and world-class entertainment.
