Historical Downtown Walking Tour

The Barrie Historical Archive will be conducting a new, interactive heritage walking tour called They Rushed In – a Main-Street stroll that highlights some of the stories of the Barrie Fire Services and heritage locations in the city’s historical downtown core. Participants will receive a brochure that complements the tour – led by local historian, writer and storyteller, Mary Harris.
