Lovely in Winter, Too

1. The locals inexplicably pronounce it "Saint RAFE-ells" or "Saint Raffles", a conceit upon which they do not enjoy being corrected, so be warned. 2. It's lovely year round and especially when it's empty. Photographers will enjoy the spot.3. It makes a l

Historic SDG Jail

PLEASE NOTE - The Historic SDG Jail is closed for the season. We will reopen in May of 2019. Built in 1833/34, the jail operated until 2002 when the Ministry of Correctional Services closed the facility in favour of newer, larger facilities in major cities. The building houses the second oldest jail in Ontario and the fifth oldest court house. The cell blocks, common areas, exercise yard and visitation area have been maintained as they were when they were populated by inmates sentenced to jail time. Step right into a cell to experience life behind bars - at least for a few moments. There are stories of prison life from the point of view of the guards as well as the inmates. You'll also learn about escapes, and we have many ghost stories to share. Jail tours are now closed for the season, but if you wish to book a group visit or other experience please contact us. Please see our Facebook page for further details.

St Lawrence Power Development Visitor Centre

OPG's St. Lawrence Power Development Visitor Centre is located on the banks of the St. Lawrence River, east of the Robert H. Saunders Generating Station, in the west end of Cornwall, Ontario. We offer 13,000 square feet of fun and is a great outing for students and families: •Chase a virtual eel up a ladder to get over the power dam. •Spin a turbine and discover how much force is needed to make electricity. •Be an operator for a day and balance power production with the needs of other river users. •Watch a video about how the St. Lawrence Seaway and Power Project was built — one of Canada's largest-ever engineering projects.

Religion dogma disguised as "Science"

Absolutely insane. Trying to pass off scripture as "science". They've changed their name to "Amazing Science Center" from "Creation Museum" to try and trick people into going there. Evolution is fact. Deal with it. Have your beliefs, no one cares, stop ly
