Home Town of Architect Walter William LaChance


Walter William LaChance was an architect best known for his designs of rural schools. He was born in Brockville in 1870.

His commissions were concentrated in Cleveland, Ohio, Hamilton, Ontario, Welland, Ontario; and various communities in Saskatchewan. He was among the first architects in Western Canada to make extensive use of reinforced concrete in multi-storey construction.

LaChance designed at least 16 schools for various Saskatchewan communities from 1906 to 1914.
