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. Join Stoney Creek Historical Society President Greg Armstrong, and his son, Urban Planner Matt Armstrong, on a tour of 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.
