Sault Ste. Marie is a collection of distinct, recognizable neighbourhoods. Every part of our city has its own particular sense of place and character stemming from its physical structure, demographic makeup and history.
While it is possible to compile and summarize a neighbourhood’s story from its architecture, streetscape, and documented history, there are many hidden stories that have yet to be revealed.
With the assistance of the Municipal Heritage Committee, the City Planning Division is undertaking neighbourhood evaluations to determine their heritage value. To date, five neighbourhoods have been identified as having locally significant heritage attributes, but there are many other neighbourhoods with their own character and stories to tell.
