Originally built in 1892 as an eight-room school, this design by William Newlands is an early red brick building in Kingston with a distinctive tower, and terracotta adornment.  The large round arch at the front entrance signifies the architectural style as Romanesque Revival. The structure is an excellent example of adaptive re-use as the building has been remodeled as the School of Business for Queen’s University.  The photo shows portions of the new additions on both sides, which have been set back from Union Street – allowing the front portion of the structure to shine.
