     Interesting Features
    The Town Hall, built in the Romanesque architect style, features Duntroon sandstone arches. Latest technology of the time was built into the structure, including: steam heat, electricity and telephones.
    Note the sturdy red brick, and heavy clock tower. Original mechanical lock, imported from England, has since been replaced with an electric replica.
    Be sure to say "Hi Mom" to the A Channel tower cam.
