We look forward to welcoming you now that we are open for the 2021 season.

To begin, our hours will be limited to Monday to Friday, 10 to 4. The staff and volunteers enjoy sharing the marine, rail, and industrial history of Owen Sound with you. 

Whether we are open or closed, you can enjoy artifacts, large and small, on the east and north side of the former CN Station. See more information about these artifacts on this website. Check also our YouTube videos on our channel. Information can be found on our Virtual Exhibit pages.

The Community Waterfront Heritage Centre staff and volunteers welcome you to our Centre. The Heritage Centre is located at 1155 1st Avenue West, Owen Sound. Our phone number is 519-371-3333.
