Tourism St. Marys invites visitors to experience a lovely summer day, brilliant shades of autumn and the sparkling crispness of winter in St. Marys, Ontario! With a picturesque and historic downtown, St. Marys boasts a nostalgic past and warm and inviting community spirit all year round.
Tucked along the Thames River, and established in 1841, St. Marys became known as ‘The Stonetown’ due to its unique architectural structures rendered in local limestone. Today, fine examples of the early stonemasons’ craft, all quarried locally, include the town hall, museum, opera house, library, the old water tower, and railway viaducts.
Stay at one of the town’s charming bed & breakfasts or inns, dine in style at a variety of tantalizing restaurants and cafes, and enjoy specialty shopping for antique or one-of-a-kind gifts.
