    furniture factory 
    • The former furniture factory was built in 1887 by Daniel Hibner, an early mayor. It was later sold to Arthur Pollock, whose company Dominion Electrohome built hardwood television cabinets there for decades.

      The property is contaminated with metals, petroleum hydrocarbons and volatile organic compounds, including trichloroethylene, an industrial degreaser. In 2008, the Ministry of the Environment registered an order on the property title to assess the contamination and develop a cleanup plan.

  • Notes 
    • Daniel Hibner, Mayor 1894-5.

      Mr. Daniel Hibner was mayor of Berlin in 1894-5 and reeve for three years. The chief item of business transacted during his terms as mayor was the breaking of the deadlock on the Park Board, they standing at sixes and sevens, as to whether to purchase the land which now comprises Victoria Park or not. His action in favor of purchasing is a tribute to his wisdom and foresight. After eighteen years he is proud to see what a beautiful park it has become. He is at present chairman of the Parks Commission and Mr. Hibner takes a deal of interest in the city's welfare. He also sat in the county council for thirteen years.1a
