For the second year in a row Cornwall’s history is being immortalized in time for the holidays.

The popular Cornwall Historic Walking Tour calendar, complete with all new plaques depicting the vibrancy of the city’s downtown area, is available for pickup.

The $20 calendars, which include high-gloss images of the walking tour plaques, have already been flying off the shelves in the Seaway City. The calendar features 13 of the best-looking plaques from the tour including the Cornwallis Hotel, the Capitol Theatre the Rossmore House and New York Cafe.

Proceeds from the sale of the calendar will be re-invested in the walking tour project, to help expand it in 2018.

“Our tour has been universally welcomed by local residents and visitors to our city who have told us they appreciate our dedication to local history and local art,” said Todd Lihou, Centretown Coordinator. “Now people can celebrate the holidays with a gift that is steeped in Cornwall’s proud heritage.”

The calendar will be available for sale at the Cornwall Civic Complex, Dubuc Eye Care and the Cornwall Chamber of Commerce. For more information on the calendar please send an email to todd@cornwallheartofthecity.com, or call 613-933-4004 ext. 224.
