100 Mile Market

100 Mile Market
Trowbridge and Cook Street

When owners David Harper and Barb Kay bought Trowbridge Place, this remarkable, one-of-a-kind building was in dire need of a facelift. They plunged in, repainting and repairing the exterior of the building, and they not only restored the face it presented to the street, but made it an exciting part of Meaford's economy as the 100 Mile Market. This restoration reveals how Municipal heritage grants and other programs might ease the burden of property owners.
