A Brief History of 1824 Store Street

The building was originally built in 1900 by the Victoria Rice and Flouring Mill, a subsidiary of the Mount Royal Milling & Manufacturing Company, of Montreal, Quebec, which used this building, and the adjacent building at 1900 Store Street, as rice and flour mills until 1923.

In 1981-1982, as this area was transitioning from a light industrial zone to the current commercial and residential district, this building was rehabilitated, with a refurbishing of its brick facade in keeping with its historic appearance.

Until the summer of 2016, this building at 1824 Store Street was occupied by Ocean River Sports, which moved to 1630 Store Street in September 2016.
