The History of Our Building


Our Building was built in 1887 by its original owner, Thomas Allen, a builder by profession.

In 1906 the building was expanded. the commercial space fronting James St. North was converted into a hotel lobby and drinking establishment, and the building commenced its existence as ‘Armory Hotel’. Its main clients of the day were the armed forces officers and their families from the Armory facilities directly across James St. North.

Clementine Live at Mulberry


Come be enchanted by the gorgeous vocals, guitar and ukelele playing of Sarah Hamilton. "Clementine, a.k.a. Sarah Hamilton, has released an album that is melancholic, wistful, spare, bleak, inviting, and yet strangely not morbid: much like its titular clippings, it meditates on the growth and death and regrowth of things big and small." - Chris Matei, Greyowl Point https://clementine-music.bandcamp.com/releases

October’s Feature Exhibition: Umbrian Landscapes at Mulberry Cafe


The group of "plein air" painters in this exhibit met at the Dundas Valley School of Art in Jody Joseph's Modern Master's Art Class. This summer they traveled with Jody to Saragano, Umbria, Italy for two weeks of intense painting. Saragano is set in a medieval town in rural Umbria, the perfect place to paint castle walls, olive groves and distant vistas from observation. The artists tried to capture the light in the early morning and late afternoon of this enchanting landscape.

Artists:
Grace Afonso
Silvia Edwards
Maggie Shepherd
Corine Van Hoeve
