The end of an era: The Squire Tavern sign removed from Petrolia’s streetcape


It is the end of an era. The Squire Tavern sign which has been a landmark in Petrolia for over 40 years came down Thursday morning. The sign was sold when the bar closed in 2012 but the owner, Tim Campbell, has just now decided to move it to his farm.


Watch it here:



  1. What a pull on the heartstrings when I see the pictures. All the memories flashed through my brain when I stared at the building after work
    And I smiled! I would have bawled like a baby watching it anyway. I know Tim will give it a nice home and hopefully hangs it where we can all see it! Cheers everyone????
