Tim Horton's Store #1

Tim Horton's Store #1. Where it all started in 1964. New store and a mini-museum on the second floor.

[Dave, 12/26/2014]

A big deal doughnut chain in Canada started by a beloved hockey player, Miles Gilbert "Tim" Horton. Unfortunately, this building has been completely renovated a number of times, no longer resembles the original doughnut shop from 50 years ago. But there's a large picture of it on an outside wall, and the second floor "Memory Lane" museum should help visitors recall doughnuts of days gone by.
