History of John Muir

The transformation and commissioning of the 1921 Sandwich Fire Hall and Stable into a stunning 21st. century public library facility is a spectacular example of innovative planning and construction. The iconic state-of-the art facility is a popular Sandwich destination.

The historically accurate restorations of both heritage buildings includes:

► Existing hose-drying tower converted to a glass-capped observation tower

► Sky-lit suspended walkway to a multi-use space on the 2nd floor of the stable housing WPL local history collection

► Outdoor piazza constructed with reclaimed granite stones Glassed-in community room with built-in digital projector & screen Fully accessible heritage building with an elevator between floors

► The 2nd floor exposes the original charred timber from the 1941 fire
