Belleville Front Street – Construction amidst the history

I had not been to Belleville itself in many years; it’s more of an exit I never take on the 401.

But a family event led me to be staying near the old part of town, Front Street. We had our GPS set for Front Street and she was thwarted by the street being closed.

Once we parked on Pinnacle Street we had trouble finding our restaurant and had a scenic walk of the construction around the old city hall building, which is truly evocative of the times around the confederation of Canada. There’s a market, which was not open in the evening, but looked like it would be fun.

The city hall (pictured below) is a lovely structure. You wouldn’t mind (too much) going in to that place to pay your property taxes.
