Saturday Stroll on Saturday, September 23, 2023. At 2:00 p.m. Discover why Prince William Street was known as the Wall Street of Canada on this walk from the Partridge Island Publishing Bookstore in the Container Village. The walk will travel up Duke to Prince William and conclude at the foot of King. Walkers will discover how the street developed following the Great Fire and how the businesses flourished as a result of port activity that gave locals a business advantage over central Canada and the Eastern USA and led to the proliferation of insurance and investment houses. The Fee is $10.00.
