Administrative history

Katherine Spenser-Ross prepared this agenda paper, for the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada. Four organizations representing the community of St Andrews had requested that the Board consider the town as a possible National Historic District. The original town plat, laid out in 1784, and its attractive collection of 18th, 19th, and early 20th century buildings formed the basis of the request. It was felt that an historic district designation would be seen as a reinforcement of its status as a heritage community, rich in history and cultural resources.
The agenda paper is divided into four parts. The first focused on the gridiron plan on which the town of St Andrews was laid out. The second part was an examination of the proposed district boundaries. The third part consists of an analysis of the characteristics of the town’s streetscapes. The fourth part examines the traditional architectural character of St Andrews.
At the turn of the last century, the government noted the interest Canadians had in protecting their heritage as well as the need to extend its network of national parks throughout the country and therefore decided to create historic sites.
