Learn the history of the building of the Kenora Community Centre, now called the Kenora Recreation Centre.
One of the major touchstone events that helped bring Kenora into a new era after all the death and destruction of the 1910s was the construction of the new Thistle Rink.
In 1907, Frank Newell was hired to design a hotel befitting the burgeoning tourist town of Kenora: The Tourist Hotel, later the Kenricia.
The Doner Block is surely one of Kenora’s most handsome structures. On the exterior it has remained largely unchanged in its 95-year history.
