Located at 243 King Street East this building was built in 1853-1854 for the Commercial Bank of the Midland District. In 1867 it was sold to the Merchants Bank of Canada, and in 1899 Regiopolis College converted the building into a High School for boys. James Richardson and Sons, priminent grain merchants of Kingston, occupied the premisis between 1914 and 1925. The next owner was the Oddfellow's Relief Association who, in 1929, sold the building to the Mutual Relief Life Insurance Company. In 1936 the Empire Life Insurance Company purchases the place for their head office. (Information was taken from page 70 of 'Kingston Splendid Heritage').
