Neighbourhood Guide Visited “Stonetown” the Town of St. Mary’s

St. Mary’s is a picturesque Town located in Southwestern Ontario along the banks of the Thames River. St. Mary’s limestone buildings and ornate brick houses will enthrall anyone who appreciates architecture. There is so much to do and see at St. Mary’s. We stopped first at the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame Museum. A must for any baseball fan. Then we toured the town by car admiring all the grand historic houses. Later we stretched our legs and worked up an appetite strolling through The Riverview Walkway, a 2.4 kilometre paved path that starts in the centre of Downtown St. Marys and runs along the Thames River. After working up an appetite it was time to stroll the downtown shops where we sampled some yummy baked goods and chocolates. The final stop was “The Quarry”, Canada’s largest freshwater swimming pool. The St. Marys Quarry was formerly a limestone Quarry that closed in 1920. In the mid-1940s it was converted to a swimming hole for all to enjoy. Feeling refreshed it was time to say goodbye to St. Mary’s. Thank you for a great day.
