What Lies Beneath: Cantley Before the Great Flood

Please join us for a joint meeting of the Gatineau Valley Historical Society and Cantley 1889 Society.

President, Marc Cockburn, will take us on multimedia voyage up the Cantley side of Gatineau river, using Google Earth and archival photos and maps to reconstruct how the river looked before much of its natural and built environment was flooded in 1927, as a result of the construction of the hydro dams at Chelsea and Farmer’s Rapids.

Come early to see a display of artifacts and images from the river and the logging era, and to stroll along, or view, the Gatineau River shoreline of La Grange.

WHEN: Monday, April 15, 7:30 p.m.

WHERE: La Grange de la Gatineau, 80 chemin Summer, Cantley (just northeast of Ottawa)
