View of The Livery from the street
In the centre of Goderich - a small town on Lake Huron - The Livery was once a horse stable. It's now a theatre that features quality dramas, musicals, comedies, and historical presentations.

The Goderich Little Theatre purchased it and in 1983 the building opened as the Goderich's Arts Centre, which in addition to housing a theatre is also home to the annual Goderich Celtic Roots Festival.

The back section of The Livery - erected in 1849 - was originally a tack shop. Evidence of it's 19th century origins are still obvious here.
The front part of The Livery was built in 1878 of Maitland River Stone as an addition to the tack shop. But when cars took the place of horses at the turn of the century, The Livery became a car dealership... until it was slated for demolition.
Thank goodness for the foresight of the local architect who believed the building would make a great theatre!
