Cathy Elliott on the development of Seaforth’s historic downtown42m | Nov 1, 2022
On this week’s episode of Postcards from Huron County, podcast host Mandy Sinclair chats with architectural enthusiast and long-time Seaforth resident Cathy Elliott about the development of the town of Seaforth and its historic downtown core.
Cathy shares memories of the downtown, the industries that once existed, and provides a visual tour inside some of the town’s least accessible buildings dotting the main street. Given her roles and responsibilities as a trustee of the town’s post office housed in a historical building, Cathy shares tips for heritage conservation.
Cathy played the role of Mrs Cardo during the town’s heritage days and brought the building to life.
Favourite quote of the episode: When you walk in you can feel people from the past, you can imagine what life was like. I just find it magical. - Cathy Elliott of visiting historic buildings on Seaforth’s downtown
