Historic buildings in Williamsford Ontario

historic building in WilliamsfordIn 2010 a group of people who love antique cars decided to stop in to the Williamsford Pie Company.  A customer took this amazing photo of all the cars lined up in front.  If you did not know any better, you would think that this was a very old photo.  But what gives away this photo is the new name of the company above the door.

Three generations of Elliots ran the Hardware business with Bob being the last of the Elliots to run it.  The building still has a post office in it and attracts local and visitors on their way to Owen Sound.  Williamsford sits on the townline between Sullivan Township and Holland Township (now part of the Municipality of Chatsworth).  Both Townships have published two history books but there are some great photos that have been copies showing how the building use to look back in the 1900’s.

The Historic society has had several meetings at the bakery and there are a lot of old photos on the wall to preserve the memories of when it was a hardware store and local post office.
