Heritage Plaque Program

The Heritage Plaque Program is not a Heritage Designation. 

A Heritage Designation is a formal recognition of a property that has significant heritage architectural features and/or attachment to a prominent historical citizen. The Heritage Designation is properly and legally drawn up by the City Staff in consultation with Heritage-Patrimoine Cornwall in accordance with the Ontario Heritage Act.

We have set up a Heritage Plaques Program that honours and recognizes owners that have purchased a heritage property and have sympathetically restored and maintained their buildings. They can purchase a plaque that is inscribed with the date built and/or a significant piece of historical information. We are hoping the plaques affixed to our heritage places will bring awareness and ignite a passion for Cornwall's past. The program is not a Heritage Designation.

Listing of Properties Built Pre- Confederation

As a tribute to the 150th anniversary of Confederation, Heritage-Patrimoine Cornwall wishes to focus attention on some of the local buildings constructed pre/circa 1867 in Cornwall. The original owners and people who subsequently lived in these homes were quite often prominent citizens.
