Cramahe Township Digital Archives

I needed a map to find the location of Cramahe Township - in Northumberland County approximately 140 km East of Toronto including Colborne as the largest town. It has a population of about 6,000.

Despite the small population it puts much larger communities to shame in putting local historical resources online. Read about the Township initiative at http://www.cramahenow.com/?p=1758.

Online resources include Colborne & Cramahe class photos between 1895 and 1959; page images of The Colborne Express, a weekly, for 1927, 1928, 1934-35, 1938-39, 1944-45 and 1947-48.; and two issues of The Enterprise Of East Northumberland for November 1948. There are also online exhibits of people and places from the community history. Start at http://vitacollections.ca/cramahelibrary/search
