The Tett Centre and site have a long history, dating back to the 1840s. The buildings were once owned by the Molson Brewery until around 1850, when they were purchased by the Morton Brewery and Distillery Company.
Over the next few decades, the site changed hands frequently and was used for a variety of purposes, including a military hospital, an Army headquarters, Corrections Canada, and a Queens University building.
The large ship named HMS St Lawrence, which was launched in 1814, was a 112-gun first-rate Royal Navy ship. It was the Royal Navy’s only ship of the line to be launched and served entirely in fresh water.
The Tett Centre For Creativity and Learning is a not-for-profit charitable organisation that operates independently. We are a welcoming destination in a city-owned heritage building where artists, arts organisations, and members of the community can gather to explore, create, and be inspired.
