No. 2 Newton Street may have been the Sailor’s Inn, which was built before 1845 and originally stood along the 12 Mile Creek. In 1900 the Sailor’s Inn was moved to Newton Street and was later converted into a Duplex.
In the 1970’s the area including 73-83 St. Paul Crescent, along with two buildings on Newton Street, was the focus of a campaign to have 10 wooden buildings designated as historical sites. The buildings were considered important because it was believed they had belonged to the shipbuilder Louis Shickluna. They were also some of the oldest buildings in St. Catharines. The buildings were ultimately demolished in the late 1970’s.
