Ridgeway Public School - Designate to Save
We, the undersigned, request that the Mayor and Council of the Town of Fort Erie move expeditiously to Designate the following as an Heritage Property and preserve it from complete demolition:
Ridgeway Public School, 143 Ridge Road North, Ridgeway, Ontario
The original structure was built in 1920 with many special and distinctive features of architectural, historical and contextual importance. This includes the architect Walter William LaChance, who significantly, has other works designated in both Ontario and Saskatchewan. Ridgeway Public School stands strongly to this day as a unique construction that bookends the town of Ridgeway and makes it an attractive locale and destination to both residents and visitors alike. It visibly records our history in many contexts, but is in imminent danger of being completely demolished, without your commitment and support. Sign today!
