Expect delays but road will not be closed. Hwy 7 detour is suggested as above, if there is an overlap.

St. Marys was first settled in the early 1840s on the banks of the Thames River and Trout Creek. Here, the water of the river fell over a series of limestone ledges, creating “Little Falls,” an early nickname for the town. The falls provided power for the pioneer mills to make flour from grain grown in the surrounding fertile farmland. The limestone was an early
source of building materials for the community.

St. Marys is now home to about 7000 residents, elegant heritage buildings, an eclectic mix of downtown stores and a vibrant community spirit. Attractions for visitors and residents alike include Canada’s largest freshwater swimming pool (the Quarry), the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame and and Museum and the St. Marys Museum.
