Everyone should see the stained glass windows in the Memorial Hall of this City Hall, worth the trip.
Had a very knowledgeable tour guide, who enjoyed the history associated with the historic building. From tales of the jail cell, the ghost stories around executed prisoners to the not so modern ice plant providing the outdoor skating.
Historical well kept and worth just walking into and around.Centrally located by the water front and if you are a tourist and doing a walking tour of Kingston pop in. Their is a friendly receptionist in the lobby who will answer questions etc. Worth a visit.
I've never went into the old City Hall but when I saw it I was amazed it was a very beautiful site to see compared to the new City Hall I wish I could of seen it from the inside for myself I seen it on Flashpoint but not for myself what I saw of it must of been magnificent... More
When Kingston was the capital of Canada, the mayor of Kingston at the time felt it needed a city hall that befitted a city that was a nations capital. It cost Kingston a fortune at the time, however, now Kingston has it forever and what a treasure.
The free City Hall tour was rated so highly that we took it. The reason this was a five for us was our guide Don. He was a professor of history and volunteers now. The building was interesting, but what was best was the history we learned along the way.
I loved Kingston's city hall. Beautiful architecture and great tour guides sum up this place. The tour guides were all volunteers too, fantastic! No admission charge but we donated $5.
Very interesting architecture and beautiful stained windows, Sir John A. Macdonald artifacts (Sir John A. Macdonald's body is in the Memorial Hall), and our guide knew the history of city hall very well . We saw the beautiful room where city officials meet, and the tiny jail cell which of course, is no longer in use.
This beautiful old building is still used as Kingston's city hall. Although access to the building is somewhat limited, visitors can visit some absolutely beautiful rooms. Kingston's history is displayed in both paintings and stained windows. Well worth a walk-through visit.
