It was the arrival of the railroad in 1855 that cemented Collingwood’s worth as a centre for shipping and shipbuilding, since the rail line offered the ability to transport goods, materials and people easily and efficiently through the Great Lakes and points west. For 103 years, Collingwood built lake freighters, corvettes, minesweepers, barges, ferries, ice breakers — anything that could sail on the Great Lakes and beyond. All of the ships were all launched sideways, usually about 12 noon. Expect to see numerous exhibits at the Museum showing Collingwood’s ship-building history, Petun First Nations’ culture and our transportation heritage. The museum is in the Railroad Station on Huron Street and St. Paul, footsteps from the harbour.
