Doors Open Waterloo Region 2014 – Schnurr’s Hall & Groceries

Schnurr General Store

Schnurr General Store

Schnurr General Store in Linwood was the first site we visited on the Doors Open Waterloo Region event last weekend. I has a fascinating collection of memorabilia.

Schnurr’s Hall hosted community events, meetings, musical shows and a circuit court from 1910 to the 1950s. Remarkably, it has been preserved intact as it was over 75 years ago, with original stage, theatrical sets, walls, floor, ceiling and more – a rare heritage interior. Downstairs, Schnurr’s Grocery is Canada’s oldest independent, family-owned and -operated grocery store.
