Earlier this year, the Architectural Conservancy of Ontario of Cobourg and East Northumberland (ACO) asked for permission to put signs on the front lawns of houses (and buildings) that existed in 1867.  Council agreed. At the time, it was said that there would be “over 200” such locations.  So far 250 signs have been placed but another 30 are being produced. The project was led by Felicity Pope. Permission was given for the signs to be up for 15 weeks – after that, the house owners will be given the signs to keep. One of the buildings that existed in 1867 was Victoria Hall and today the ACO presented a sign for the Town to use (see photo below). On Monday, the Sifton-Cook Museum Foundation presented their scale model of Cobourg as it was in 1867 and it’s now on display in the foyer of the Town Hall.

In the photo below left, Mayor Brocanier has accepted the sign from ACO President Diane Chin and ACO Membership Chair Felicity Pope.  The photo at right shows the model of the Town – it will be in the foyer until Thursday (July 6) and eventually will find a spot in the Sifton-Cook Heritage Centre.  Click a photo to get an expanded view.

There is a preliminary list of the “pre-1867 homes” at the Cobourg History site here. Felicity says that this list is a “work in progress” – it is planned to be added to the Town’s web site on the Heritage page and hopefully it will be updated on the Cobourg History site as well.
