Janes Walk – Olde Town Stoney Creek with the Historical Society President
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 will pass by historic homes, heritage sites, ghost bowling alleys and grocery stores, and learn a little more about early residents. Greg will also point out some recently designated historic sites that are now protected for future generations.
This walk was so much fun last year, that it’s being hosted again this year with more stories and on 3 dates! Join us!
