The tour focuses on parts of the city that were active as part of the commercial and industrial areas, as well as some residential buildings. We’ll explore the nature of wholesale stores along the waterfront and the role of the market square in a colonial city. From the ground level we’ll get a glimpse into daily life of a 19th century Kingstonian and be able to contrast that with our modern comforts. The tour will end with an interior tour of City Hall.


Key points of the tour include:

  • St. George’s Cathedral
  • Smith Robinson Building
  • City Hall
  • Gildersleeve House
  • Old Railway Stations
  • Market Square
