The Old Canada Road Historical Society was founded when a group of regional historians came together around the work of archaeologists Barry Rodrigue and Alaric Faulkner, who together began a survey of the Canada Road in 1993.
There was great excitement as this project rekindled local interest in area history and brought together some of our most knowledgeable citizens.
The historical society took shape in 1999 with these early participants. In 2001, the Society sought and received designation as a nonprofit organization. Soon, an event series called "Community History Nights" was launched, featuring various speakers and topics.
