HISTORY & CULTURE, ENVIRONMENT
About the Walk:
Bring your imagination with you to share in the rich waterfront history of Kingsville. Picture the old lighthouse signaling ships in a storm. Pretend you are one of the passengers unloading to holiday at the grand Mettawas Hotel. Or perhaps you travelled by train from Windsor? Or listen carefully for the whisper in your ear of George the Ghost—does he still hang out at the Grovedale? Consider what changes may be in store for the future of Kingsville’s Port of Appeal!
About the art/artist:
Local Kingsville artist Coleen Szura painted the Kingsville Lighthouse when at the previous location of Lakeside Park. Coleen has been painting all her life and at this time specializes in local historical locations and commission paintings of loved and lost pets.
