“Veteran’s Memorial Building” - Unionville, Ontario

This week’s submission to Norm 2.0‘s Thursday Doors.

Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favourite door photos from around the world.

“Veteran’s Memorial Building” – Unionville, Ontario

In the small Ontario town of Unionville, well, not so small as Unionville is actually part of the city of Markham, sits this beautiful old building, which I thought was a church, until further inspection.

It’s now an audio/video store but the original doors are still there, so, whatever. In fact, I was going to go inside to check it out when I realized it was now retail space and quickly walked back out. Just too much of a contrast for me that day.

Unionville is a beautiful historic town, still quite well preserved among the high-tech landscape of surrounding Markham. The original buildings are quite well preserved but have mostly been converted into shops and restaurants. Have a quick Streetview tour, if you like.

  1. It’s so nice to encounter these old buildings with their lovely doors still intact. This one is a beauty, and her doors have the look of an old church.
    Unionville is such a pretty place. They’ve done a great job of preserving and re-purposing their old buildings.

  2. Love Unionville, and this door is wonderful. I was thinking earlier this morning about the difference between Quebec church doors (ie Norm’s grand doors today ) and the pretty but reserved churches of Ontario. This is the perfect example.

  3. That is lovely, though its new vocation seems a bit odd for an old church. All the same, at least they didn’t tear it down 🙂

  4. Beautiful -and different with two stained glass windows in this door – Brick with a white door makes it hard to overlook:)
