Hello Visitors!

WHY are we doing this project? ..To Preserve History.

Frances Caroline Turnbull, self-portraitMuch information is being lost, newspapers destroyed, historic buildings being torn down, bridges disappearing. The children of today need to know the history of the towns where they live. We the people are the ones who can carefully preserve this precious history for them. It is our responsibility as the older generation to leave stories, pictures and artifacts for them so that when they become older and wonder what went before, it will be available.  That is what this website is about. Preserving the history of Welland for future generations.

An article from the The Welland Tribune and Telegraph, 11 July 1922, describes what we are trying to present with this website.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS: We thank the The Welland Tribune and Telegraph for their contribution.

    Great site!

    I enjoyed reading the articles and was looking for info on one company that was operating in Welland many years ago. I have a wooden barrel made by MMP Co. Welland. It is stamped into the barrel just below the handle. I had a drain spigot so I’m assuming liquid of some sort.

    Anyone have information about them?

    Feel free to contact me.
