If you are going on an extended vacation or taking a break, whether indoors or on a beach, don’t forget to bring a good book to keep you company. I thought it quaint to embark on such an escapade and visited this tiny jail cell in Creemore.
Attention getting or outlandish, the novel Outfoxed has great five star reviews on Goodreads.
Grady Harp calls it “a sizzling new series opens.”
Anthony Avina calls it “an incredible action thriller.”
The former village is now part of Clearview Township, located in Simcoe County, Ontario, Canada. Creemore is from an Irish name Croí Mór, which means big heart. Creemore is promoting their jail as the smallest one in North America. The all limestone structure was built in 1892. It’s the smallest three cell structure in Ontario, and possibly all of North America.
The little “lock up” was in use for fifty years for individuals disturbing the peace or for public intoxication.
An original log cabin that is a Heritage site is situated next-door to the jail for those interested in more local history.
My friend David and I were on the way to Thornbury to an antique store. We had the top down on the Aston Martin DB9 and stopped by the prison as David had not seen it before.
The village of Creemore itself has lots to offer for anyone visiting. You can grab a pint at Creedmore Springs brewery and visit a lavender farm nearby or enjoy sightseeing, and great food in the many restaurants in the town.
On Saturday morning there is a farmers market that has many products and goods from the local farmers.
While here don’t forget to visit the jail. And for a really good read, Outfoxed is available at Apple books, Barnes and Noble, Kobo store, Google play, Amazon, Friesen Press bookstore, and locally at Booklore in Orangeville.
Visit Peter’s Perspective often to keep up with my carefree antics.
