Originally a Forwarding Trade building, 201 Water Street, corner of Centre Street (SW) – circa 1810. An interesting example of a commercial structure, with a basic pattern of simplified three storey Scottish-Canadian architecture; incorporating beautiful exterior and interior molding, rugged stone work and zestful fireplaces. It maintains its original design and fabric with a few interior alterations.

The building is a local landmark and important in streetscape terms because of its position and location relative to the proposed town waterfront redevelopment.
