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 village, introduce some early inhabitants and show how the community has evolved over time.

 

GUIDE: Janet Uren is a professional writer, author or co-author of four books on local history, including a recent book on St. Bartholomew's Church in New Edinburgh. A resident of the community since 2001, she is working with historian Martha Edmond on a history of New Edinburgh.
