Collingwood Heritage Advocate Speaks
Collingwood is not just a modern and growing town. It is also a community that is filled with living examples of our history. From our downtown Heritage District to our magnificent century homes, Collingwood offers many visual and tangible reminders of where we have been.
I’ve often mentioned Rick Lex here on this blog as our key heritage advocates in Collingwood. He is founder of the local chapter of the Architectural Conservancy of Ontario (of which I am myself a proud member) and, a developer who has shown that heritage preservation can work on every level. His award-winning renovation of the former Tremont Hotel in Collingwood’s downtown is a perfect example.
In the third presentation of the local, “No Place Like Home” Speaker Series, Rick Lex discusses how cultural heritage relaties to sustainability and to our sense of place. I encourage you to take about 20 minutes to learn from this outstanding gentleman by viewing this video.
