PERFORMANCE SPACE: The James Street North Theatre was once known as The Forester's Hall. Built in 1884 by the Ancient Order of Foresters, the architect was W.A. Edwards. The hall housed meetings and functions for many years and was used as a performance space. It was rumoured to have hosted artists such as Caruso and Billie Holiday during its heyday. Currently, the space is Hamilton artist Colina Maxwell's studio and gallery.
