  1. Dec. 21, 1977.
    City of Cornwall purchases Cornwall Electric from Sun Life Assurance for $4.8 million. announcing it would take over the Water Street properties to be used for redeveloping the downtown area to create the $18.5-million Cornwall Square, owned by the city and leased to Cambridge Leaseholds Ltd.

    Not owned by city anymore?
