about this item

A guided tour of historic Unionville, a little Ontario village bursting with historic buildings full of stories.Unionville is a village in the city — an unexpected oasis where time seems to move a little more slowly than in the hectic world of condos, commercial strips, and traffic gridlock. Since the late 1960s, when Unionville and its vintage Main Street were “discovered,” the village has been a magnet for visitors. Historic Unionville is the first detailed exploration of the facts and folklore behind Unionville’s winding ways and eclectic architectural sights, which span two centuries from the Georgian to the Postmodern.Touring the heritage sites that still stand proudly in the community as signposts to the past, George Duncan brings to life stories of the people, places, and events behind this unique and inviting Ontario village.A guided tour of historic Unionville, a little Ontario village bursting with historic buildings full of stories.Unionville is a village in the city — an unexpected oasis where time seems to move a little more slowly than in the hectic world of condos, commercial strips, and traffic gridlock.
