Photograph of the Week. Maple Leaf Hotel.


The old Maple Leaf Hotel, 10 Montreal Road, 1911.  Proprietor George A. Prieur.  The hotel became Le Village Donuts, the building was demolished in 2001.

A typical three-storey 19th century brick building, the first description of the building is found in the 1906 “Old Boys’ Reunion.”

The advertoral reads, “The house is lighted with electricity, is well heated and also provided with the best sanitary conveniences.  The Maple Leaf enjoys a large transient trade as well as being patronized largely by farmers.”
