Region of Waterloo Public Building Inventory Launches

Waterloo Region – The Region of Waterloo is excited to launch a new research resource, the Waterloo Region Public Building Inventory.

The Region of Waterloo’s Heritage Planning Advisory Committee (HPAC) has inventoried all purpose-built public buildings in the Region of Waterloo constructed pre-1951. Over 200 structures have been inventoried, including post offices, hospitals, town and city halls, farmers’ markets, armouries, police and fire stations, court houses, jails, water pumping stations, railway and trolley stations, arenas, swimming pools, parks, auditoriums, and 104 education-related buildings, such as one-room school houses.

These structures have played a central role in the growth and development of our local communities over the past two centuries. The goal of the inventory is to increase awareness of these structures to support future heritage conservation efforts and adaptive re-use projects. It is hoped that the inventory will be a useful tool for researchers, municipal staff, heritage committees, property owners/investors and other interested individuals.

The inventory was officially launched as part of Heritage Week 2016 and is now available for download from the Region of Waterloo’s website. Hardcopies have also been distributed to libraries and municipal offices.
