QUEEN STREET CEMETERY MAY GET HERITAGE TAG

The Old Town Cemetery on Queen Street may soon become Sault Ste. Marie's first piece of land to be given heritage designation. City councillors endorsed the designation Monday. It now goes through three to six-month process before becoming officially protected from charge. The designation will ensure that the small plot of land just east of Pine Street isn't altered or the graves removed. It will also permit the city to apply for provincial funding to restore some of the decayed tombstones. If approved it will mark the first time the city has designated a piece of land as historical significant. There are currently 20 buildings in the Sault that are protected under the Ontario Heritage Act. The cemetery holds the remains of about 175 of the city's early pioneers. Names like Burden, Brown Simpson and Ironside featured prominently on the weathered stones. Possibly the most noted name in the small plot is David Pim. The first English settler other then government officials or Hudson's Bay Co. officers, died in 1870 at the age of 43. Another is Col. John Savage, the first registrar of the judicial district of Algoma. Appointed by John A. Macdonald, he lived in Sault, Michigan before finding residence on the Canadian side. He died in 1876 at the age of 76. The cemetery has sustained years of neglect and vandalism. The Sault Horticulture Society maintained the grounds in the 1960s and 1970s and a restoration project was conducted by the Historical Sites Board in 1983. Aside from those buried, the cemetery is a good example of a nineteenth century and early twentieth century municipal cemetery in a Northern Ontario community, said a report from the local architectural conservation advisory board (LACAC). It's been used as a final resting place since 1863 when George Ironside, the Indian superintendent, was buried there. The property was owned by Joseph Wilson, the custom collector. Until 1914, when the last burial was recorded, the Queen Street Cemetery was the municipal cemetery. The city purchased the privately owned Greenwood Cemetery in 1920 from John Dawson for the new municipal cemetery. The Queen Street site is also known as the Protestant cemetery with records coming from the St. Luke's Cathedral and Central United Church. The Catholic cemetery was on the site of Boston Motors before moved.
