Author Visit: A Place Called Wallbridge by Alexander D. McNaught

Local author Alexander McNaught will be visiting the Stirling Library to discuss his book, A Place Called Wallbridge.

"This well written and well-illustrated book is the result of 12 years of devotion to research and writing. [...] The community story that [McNaught] presents is chronologically organized in brief chapters that bring to light significant local issues, events, and people that helped to shape Wallbridge. [...] In 200 pages, interspersed with photographs, drawings, maps, reproductions of official records, and other fascinating visual material - plus a number of appendices - McNaught has easily fulfilled the oldtimers' wishes in a manner that would appeal to all Ontario history supporters, and not just those in the rural hamlet."

Nice Women Don't Want the Vote Exhibit

"NICE WOMEN DON'T WANT THE VOTE."

Glanmore National Historic Site Celebrates

the 100th Anniversary of Women Winning the Right to Vote

"Nice Women Don't Want the Vote," an exhibit developed by the Manitoba Museum, is now open at Glanmore National Historic Site in Belleville, ON.

“Nice Women Don’t Want the Vote,” outlines the historical context of the Suffragist movement and commemorates the 100th anniversary of Manitoba women winning the right to vote. Although the exhibit specifically highlights the suffragist movement in Manitoba, Ontario was not too far behind, granting some women the right to vote in April 2017 through a bill put forward by Belleville resident and local Member of the Ontario Legislative Assembly, J.W. Johnson.

Nice Women Don't Want the Vote is on display until May 7, 2017 at Glanmore National Historic Site, 257 Bridge Street East, Belleville. For more information visit http://www.glanmore.ca or call 613-962-2329.
