Description:
Copy of a photo of the St. Marys Journal office which was located at 142 Queen Street East. When the St. Marys Journal and the St. Marys Argus became one newspaper in the 1920s (to become the current St. Marys Journal Argus), the paper still occupied this building. Of course, the lettering was changed to reflect the newspaper's new name.

This building is now the home of The Chocolate Factory.

Location: 142 Queen Street East
Original Owner: T.B. Guest
Date of Construction: 1868

REASONS FOR DESIGNATION:
The Journal-Argus building is located in the east third of a major stone block erected by T.B. Guest in 1868. This fine stone structure emphasizes the strength of the Classical Revival style through its simple plan and careful proportions. The large blocks of coursed St. Marys limestone that were used add to the monumental effect of this three-storey edifice.
The Journal-Argus portion of the block is fronted on its first storey with handsome carved wooden mouldings (which may be original) and a recessed door containing an attractive rectangular transom. This store, which has housed the Eedy publishing firm since 1895, is one of the most picturesque in town, and calls for immediate designation.
