Jane Jacobs loved old city neighbourhoods with their diversity of building types and residents with a variety of professions and trades. In these neighbourhoods, people know one another by name.
Upper Doon reflects many of the characteristics Jane Jacobs advocated to keep. Upper Doon is a Heritage Conservation District; on the tour you will hear about and see where Waterloo County’s historic figures – Homer Watson’s family, Tilt’s, Perine’s- lived and worked. And we are going to find the first successful flax mill in Upper Canada! Okay, the ruins exist!
