Exploring Photos with the NOTL Museum: Lakeview House
Exploring photos with the Niagara-on-the-Lake Museum.

This is a watercolour of the Lakeview House-Riverside-Harbour Inn. The inn was built near the corner of Melville Street and River Beach Road in 1860 by John Thornton. Many of the owners of the railway car manufacturing company located in the dock area stayed here. In 1870, John Rousseau Sr. bought the establishment and renamed it Lakeview House. Later owners included James Doyle and Frank Addison. Over the years the Lakeview was renamed the Riverside and then the Harbour Inn. The building burned down in the late 1990s and is now the site of riverfront condominiums.
