Great find on archive.org : St. Mary’s Church Barrie & St. Patrick’s Church Phelpston Parish Guide 1905. (UPDATED 06/12/10)
Included within are advertisements from many of the local stores and a great picture of the original St. Mary’s Church and St. Joseph’s convent. The convent has had a number of uses including school and Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School Board office in the past. It is presently utilized as business offices and is located at 88 Mulcaster St. – Barrie. Unfortunately St. Mary’s Catholic Church is no longer in existence. It was opposite the convent on Mulcaster, where the current Revenue Canada offices and very flat parking lot exist.
Within this post you will find a postcard from the McCord Library of St. Mary’s Catholic Church circa 1910, St. Mary’s Barrie Parish Guide 1905 and a link to google streetscape showing the convent today.
