documenting Aurora Yonge Street Front Views, Note the Icicles or Wooden Plaque

Yonge Street Front Views, Note the Icicles or Wooden Plaque

When driving further South on Yonge Street, Aurora, Ontario; away from the Wellington Street intersection, the street views change. In the view there are mostly individual commercial old Auroran houses located on Yonge Street. Last weekend, while travelling to Richmond Hill, I was amazed how big the icicles on those building were getting.  But then I switched to look out for buildings with a wooden plaque. I didn’t know much about Aurora’s heritage wooden plaque program until someone mentioned they obtained one recently.

Perhaps this may interest you, Heritage Wooden Plaques (File Type: PDF).

A wooden plaque is an attractive plaque designed to be displayed on the exterior front-facing wall of your building to show important facts including the name of the building, significant owner(s) and the building’s date of construction.”

Only properties that are listed on the Aurora Register of Properties of Cultural Heritage Value or Interest (including designated properties under either Part IV or Part V of the Ontario Heritage Act) will be deemed eligible for a historical wooden plaque under this program.

Looks like my explorations of the Town never stop. I was intrigued by the icicles hanging off the buildings and I ended up looking beyond them and finding some interesting venue to further explore Aurora’s history.
