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

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
