Gow's Bridge Doors Open Guelph

Gow's Bridge

This 1897 stone bridge is one of only 10 stone bridges remaining in Ontario. Peter Gow built the first bridge here to bypass the toll gate at Gordon Street. During Doors Open, Guelph theatre artist Jay Wilson will tell stories of the bridge, the Brooklyn area and some of the local scandals. Check the schedule for performance times. (Photo: Leanne Piper)
