1. VILLAGE LIBRARY, 10 Colborne St. This house was built in 1851 for Mrs. Ellen Ramsden, born a Frizzell. It has been a grocery story and veterinary office; at one time the rear was a stable, with horses for hire. Since 1959, it has been the home of the Village Library which had been located in different venues since the first Book Society in 1829. The building has been expanded and renovated extensively and is designated under the Ontario Heritage Act as a unique example of a modest domestic building of the Classical Revival style. The garden is late Victorian in design and plantings. The library plays an important role in the community and also houses a ghost or two. The building celebrated its sesquicentennial in 2001. Thornhill Village Library, 10 Colborne St.
