Excerpt from Wikipedia:

Dundas is famous for The Collins Hotel, the longest running hotel in Ontario. One feature of the building is a front portico with four fluted Doric columns; above them are triglyphs and metopes found on a traditional Doric entablature with a discrete cornice. The roof has a series of dormers with Florentine pediments. There are two floors to the hotel, the second of which has a balcony running the full length of the building. On the street level there are shops.

It was built in 1882, and used to have a grocery store and a hardware store. The transom over the main entrance still reads "15 Laing Apts". 13-19 King Street West.

Excerpt from dundasheritage.com:

13-17 King Street West was completed in 1882. Peter and Robert Laing operated a grocery store at No. 13 and leased No. 17 to clothier Thomas Staman. 19 King Street West was also built in 1882 by James Smith a hardware merchant. These buildings are excellent examples of commercial architecture of the time. Note the symmetrical unified façade of three storeys and the dominant cornice line and decorative brackets.

Excerpt from dundasheritage.com:

Situated in Dundas’ historic core, the Carnegie Library of 1910 is a distinguished component of the town’s provincially valuable streetscape. Architects Chapman and McGiffon of Toronto succeeded in creating a design that not only blended in with the commercial brick terraces but emphasized the building’s special role as the town’s first free public library. Particularly striking is the corner entrance way with its classical columns and imposing stairway. Andrew Carnegie provided the funds for the building and Colonel J.J. Grafton donated the site.
