Stratford historical society and local Architectural Conservancy chapter donate to help save Gallery Stratford building – click here for article in the Stratford Beacon Herald.
Built in 1883 on the banks of the Avon River, Stratford’s original pump house with its elaborate architectural elements and picturesque setting is a perfect location today for the city’s public gallery of visual art – Gallery Stratford. Located at 54 Romeo Street, the building’s Queen Anne Style architecture contains Gothic Revival Style elements that are seen elsewhere in the community. The character of the former Water Works building is quite in keeping with the designs of George F. Durand, a prominent London, Ontario architect who designed the Perth County Courthouse. – Wikipedia
