Whitby Downtown Core

It touts an eclectic mix of historical architecture and over 470 businesses, making it a joy to explore on foot. Visitors and locals alike enjoy it for the local Farmer’s Market that runs from May to October, its proximity to the library and Whitby History Museum, and the Whitby Centennial Building, a 160-seat theatre with beautiful architecture rooted in the history of the city.
Whitby was first known as a transportation hub with a busy harbour and a number of road connections and railway activity. Since then, it has become home to a steel mill and large pharmaceutical company, both of which offer steady employment for the residents of Whitby.
In WWII, Whitby was a close neighbour to Camp X, a radio communications centre developed to train covert agents–it’s said that 500 students were trained here during the war.
