My old hometown! I figured you'd hit this sooner or later. God, such a beautiful place to grow up.
I lived in this house and my dad preached at that church from 1985-1990. we moved to this horrible suburban tract in Barrie when dad took a job at a bigger church. No wonder I have such a hate on for suburbia now!
Both CN (former Grand Trunk and Great Western) mainlines went through this town - the lines to Sarnia and Windsor. The Sarnia line has since been torn up and made into a walking trail - complete with what's now a huge pedestrian bridge - thus preserving the 100+ year old structure. The VIA still stops here. Two trains a day run towards London and Toronto.
