Grey and Simcoe Foresters Regimental Museum Doors Open Simcoe County

Grey and Simcoe Foresters Regimental Museum

This unusually shaped building – erected as a military drill hall and armoury – was the headquarters of the 35th Battalion Simcoe Foresters until 1914 when it became auxiliary to the new Queen’s Park armoury. In 1948, it became a farmers’ market. In recent years, the building was revitalized and designated for its architectural/historical significance, and is now a regimental museum.
