Barrie Historical Archives’ Grand Hotel Walking Tour

has gone virtual

Every September, the Barrie Historical Archives take patrons on a walking tour of Barrie’s historic hotels and this year they are continuing the tradition on their Facebook page.

All week The Barrie Historical Archives will be sharing stories about one of Barrie’s grand hotels with pictures, letters written by those who stayed there, and what occupies the space now. So far they have explored the Queen’s Hotel and Hotel Simcoe.
