Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Corps Iron Duke

Originally built in 1858 as a Methodist church, this structure later became the local headquarters for the Canadian Legion. Since 1949, the building has been home to the Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Corps Iron Duke. The Sea Cadets is a free program that teaches youth leadership, seamanship and more. See the Gothic-revival architecture and hear about the 1980 fire!
