New Edinburgh

Sunday, August 28, 2016 - 14:00 to 15:30

New Edinburgh, a mill-town founded in 1832, is one of Canada’s earliest planned communities and still presents a largely 19th-century face to the world. The tour will look at the industrial roots of the town, will introduce some early inhabitants and show how the community has evolved over time.

GUIDE: Janet Uren will lead the tour, but she worked with Katherine Arkay to develop the content. Both are owners of designated heritage houses in New Edinburgh.
