In the Spotlight // St. Peter’s ACHS College School

St. Peter’s ACHS College School could be a great alternative for your son’s education. If your son qualifies, he could gain opportunities and advantages that students would not be able to acquire at most other schools. St. Peter’s ACHS College School offers small class sizes, and individualized academic programming which has students working at their own level and speed. Our unique program allows students to advance higher and faster academically than in most other schools. This particularly applies to Math, Language, History, Science, and Music.

Sports, athletics and play are also a huge part of our program. We strongly believe in the phrase, “A HEALTHY BODY A HEALTHY MIND”.

St. Peter’s ACHS College School is also a Roman Catholic Parochial School that welcomes both religious and non religious students. Our school is set up for active and athletic boys who want to succeed while having fun in the process. We are eagerly looking for new students (both day and residential) to join our school family. We want to grow and hope you can be a part of it. Our new location here in Amherstburg is great and is so much better than we had before. Call Peter at 519-736-2014 for more details and for a TOUR!

In the Spotlight // Lord Amherst Public House

Lord Amherst Public House is named after Lord Jeffrey Amherst who served as the first Governor General of British North America and was commanding general of the British forces in North America that defeated the French to acquire Canada for England. Amherstburg also owes its name to Lord Jeffrey.

Our Pub is housed at 273 Dalhousie Street, the building dating back almost 200 years. Over these years, the building has served as a Pharmacy, General Store, Soda Shop, China Shop, Furniture store, and now Lord Amherst. Located on the corner of Murray and Dalhousie Street, this building once marked the centre of town and was the place to go to run into friends and neighbours and to get the scoop on what was going on. From Soldiers to Sailors to Rum Runners, this building has seen it all. And we continue the great tradition of this building by bringing locals and travelers together for food and drink and to get the scoop on what’s going on.

Lord Amherst is a cozy traditional pub located on historic Dalhousie Street in downtown Amherstburg. Situated across from the Navy Yard Park, this rustic locale is the place to meet old friends for lively conversations over food and drink. We provide fresh, local traditional pub fare and a top shelf beer and drink selection. **New…upstairs is opening soon!

Hours Monday-Sunday 11:30 am – close.
