About the Building


As the boldly carved sign above the entrance proclaims, this was once the Royal Bank of Canada. It was constructed between 1911 and 1913, designed by architect Kenneth Guscotte Rea, and is an example of Classical Renaissance architecture which is balanced, symmetrical, and features decorative details like the scroll capped carved columns and an elaborate roofline. 

Tyndall stone is again the principle facing material, and there are various fossils to be seen including an especially good example of a tabulate chain coral to the left of the entrance.
