From being a grain and agricultural centre in the late 1800s to becoming an incubator for unique businesses, a hub for artists and artisans, and the host of many community events, St. Marys illustrates why small towns work – charming history paired with modern amenities, all wrapped in an extraordinary setting, in any season.
The Stonetown is an apt moniker for St. Marys as the town is filled with unique architecture that features locally quarried limestone. The stone buildings reveal much about the town's history and, in many cases, the development of the town can be witnessed in its architecture.
From stunning architecture to picturesque vistas, St. Marys has a special character all its own. To assist in the preservation of this character, the Town of St. Marys designated its downtown core as a Heritage Conservation District in 2012.
St. Marys is conveniently located just 20 kilometres (12 miles) from Stratford, 40 kilometres (24 miles) from London and 175 kilometres (108 miles) from Toronto.
