Whitby Centennial Building

edit this listing
The Centennial Building was built in the early 1850s as the Ontario County Courthouse. Designed by prominent architects Frederick Cumberland and Wallace Storm, this building served from 1854 until 1964 as a trial court and a meeting place for County Council. In 1967, a local Centennial project turned the building into a community centre. The courthouse presently houses the Whitby Courthouse Theatre, a banquet facility, local archives and is used by community organizations. In 1979, the Centennial Building was designated as a Heritage Structure under the Ontario Heritage Act, and a Heritage Easement was registered with the Ontario Heritage Foundation in 1984, protecting the heritage value of both the property and the building. During the 2002-2003 season, the Centennial Building was temporarily closed for renovations, which focused on restoring the facility to its original splendour. Following this extensive renovation project the Centennial Building officially reopened to the public on June 14, 2003.Whitby Courthouse Theatre, located in the Centennial Building, provides quality community theatre to the public.
