Pastoral setting disappears

New homes loom behind heritage buildings
The multi-million dollar homes being built at Kinghorn, by Genview Development Corporation, present a new backdrop to the historical buildings of the King Heritage and Cultural Centre.   The 1851 King Christian Church, fronting on the King Road, is pictured above.   The museum and old train station on the site are also now at a loss of the former bucolically transcending rural scenery, lying to the north alongside the East Humber River.   The heritage and cultural centre, of course, benefited from the gift of a new building which will be a huge asset for the whole of King Township.
