The Land Registry Office, Colborne
Sketch and text by Barry King

"Dating from the 1850s, the Colborne Registry Office was charged with collecting and keeping safe, behind its barred windows, all the property transactions of East Northumberland. When the records were consolidated at the Cobourg Registry in 1902, the Colborne Office closed its doors.

In close proximity to the village centre, the charming neo-classic building boasts arched windows and brick dentilling tucked under the eaves. It was built on land said to be donated by John M. Grover, the gentleman who became the first Registrar. John was the husband of Elisabeth Goslee, the daughter of Junis P. Goslee who donated the lumber and gave the Glebe land on which Trinity Anglican Church was built in Colborne. The Grovers built their home, Seaton Hall, an imposing brick residence, nearby at 89 King Street East.

The Registry building is now owned by the municipality and is today an art gallery keeping safe the creative works of Northumberland County artists as well as displaying some of the area's historical artifacts."
