house tour - heritage cambridge

some ladies who had volunteered for the tour had lunch at lily ruth on saturday and left behind this complimentary map and ticket. cafe13 is on the tour and the blurb gave me a little more insight into my block - known as the granite block.
Built as part of the Granite Block, between 1851 and 1862, this composite stone building more than any othr led old Galt to once being dubbed the Granite City. Brothers William and Robert Webster erected this Georgian stone building to replace an earier block that was destryed by fire. It is not only considered a fine example of pre-Confederation architecture, but also symbolizes the spirit of cooperation in the community established by six independent merchants who built it. For many years the Imperial Bank occupied the building's main corner, where Cafe 13 Bar & Grill now resides.
