Janes Walk – Olde Town Stoney Creek with the Historical Society President

SCHSJanesWalk

Settled in the 1700s, Olde Town Stoney Creek has hundreds of years of secrets to tell. Stoney Creek Historical Society President Greg Armstrong, and his son, Urban Planner Matt Armstrong, tour the former village of Stoney Creek.

During the walk, we passed by historic homes, heritage sites, ghost bowling alleys and grocery stores, and learned a little more about early residents. Greg also pointed out some recently designated historic sites that are now protected for future generations.

A Message from our President

On behalf of the Stoney Creek Historical Society (SCHS), I welcome you to our web site.

We exist to capture and preserve the history of Stoney Creek for current and future generations.

I am very proud of what we have accomplished to date, but there is more to do.

Please have a good look at the various tabs that we have established. We welcome your thoughts and comments.

We have an exceptional Reference Library and Archive. Our volunteers have gathered a number of historic documents, records, and photos, and will assist you if you wish to make a donation. Our continuing appreciation to Councillor Maria Pearson who was instrumental in acquiring our current Reference Library and Archive location.

We have monthly meetings, each with a dynamic speaker and an engaging topic.

Admission $2.00 for non-members and refreshments follow.

My thanks to our members and corporate sponsors for their ongoing support.

Do join us. I know that you’ll be glad that you did.

 

Greg Armstrong

President-SCHS.
