The building which now houses the Freshco supermarket was once the Brock Street Arena and operated as a dance hall.

Brock Street was also called Doctors’ Row because of the number of doctors’ homes located on it.

This video by Birchbark Media for Doors Open Peterborough explains the architectural history of the street starting around 4:05, and has many other interesting sections describing Peterborough’s downtown history.
