Peterborough Armoury

The Armoury, which is a National Historic Site, was designated Classified. It was designated because it is a good example of a typical drill hall dating from Canada’s third phase of drill hall construction (1896-1918) and it exhibits particularly good architectural design, detailing and craftsmanship.Built in the Romanesque Revival style during a period of great prosperity for Peterborough, it is one of the larger drill halls in Canada.  Its setting reinforces the military character of its immediate surroundings. The building is a well-known and conspicuous landmark within Peterborough and the home of the Hastings and Prince Edward County Regiment.
