It was the arrival of the railroad in 1855 that cemented Collingwood’s worth as a centre for shipping and shipbuilding. For 103 years, Collingwood built lake freighters, corvettes, minesweepers, barges, ferries and ice breakers — anything that could sail on the Great Lakes and beyond. Stroll through the exhibits at the Collingwood Museum, located in a historic Railroad Station across from the Harbour, for a journey into a legendary past.
Books, music CDs, films and internet use. Hours: Mon-Thurs 10am-9pm, Fri 10am-8pm, Sat.10am-5pm, Sun. 1-4pm (closed Sundays during July and August).
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.

450 million years ago, the Craigleith area was submerged under the Ordovician Sea, not at all like our modern deep ocean basins. It was extensive and shallow, probably warm, oxygenated and sunlit. These factors combined to make the perfect environment for one of the world’s first species of animal to flourish — the trilobite. Ideal geologic and atmospheric conditions allowed for fossilization of these creatures, giving us the unique opportunity of viewing these ancient inhabitants in the shoreline shale rock in Craigleith.

The Craigleith Depot owes its existence to Sir Sandford Fleming, Canada’s celebrated railway engineer. In 1872, Fleming’s father sold a parcel of land to the Northern Railway for the construction of a station with the very newest architectural design, a rounded turret. In a direction quite unforeseen by the Flemings, the little station became the hub of ski trains from Toronto in the early 1940’s, and planted the seeds for what was to become Ontario’s premier four season recreational destination. In 2008, the Craigleith Heritage Depot reopened its doors as a community heritage interpretation centre and tourism office.
A growing demand for artificial light led to the establishment, in 1859, of plant called the Craigleith Oil Shale Works to obtain oil through the treatment of local bituminous shales. The enterprise, the only one of its kind in the province’s history, failed by 1863. The inefficiency of its process made its products uncompetitive after the discoveries of “free” oil at Petrolia and Oil Springs, near Sarnia. A commemorative plaque can be found at the Craigleith Provincial Park off Highway #26.
