Perth & District Historical Society March Meeting

"Lumber Barons, Rascally Politicians & Canada’s Railway King: The Ottawa Valley in the Railway Age" is the topic for the March 17 meeting.

Perth native son and ex-pat, Brian Gilhuly, will speak on the fascinating story of the Ottawa Valley railroads, including the Perth branch of the Brockville to Ottawa (B&O) line, which celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2014 - an appropriate subject for the third presentation of the Society's 200th Anniversary series.

The meeting is at Perth's Royal Canadian Legion, home of the Hall of Remembrance,
26 Beckwith Street E., Perth, at 7:30pm (Toonie donation).
