Walking Tour of Historic Newmarket


By Ann Evans
Due to the response for the June historic walk of Newmarket when not everyone could be accommodated, I again invite you to join me on a historic tour of old Newmarket in September. Our guide will be Beth Hart, curator of the Museum in Newmarket. She is very knowledgeable of the area and has many interesting stories to tell of the building and events associated with the various structures.

Come and see where MacKenzie’s 1837 rebellion found its roots; where Robert Simpson began his illustrious mercantile career; and where Canada’s first female pharmacist began her career.
Walk through over two hundred years of history and bring your camera – a lot of it is still there for you to capture. Two dates are available with some spots already taken.

Dates:
Wednesday, 26th September
Thursday, 27th September
Ideal group size is 12 so there is a possibility of a second day.

Time:
We should gather at 10:00am inside The Museum at 134 Main Street South. There is much to peruse before we start our tour at 10:30 a.m.

Cost of event as a donation to the museum:
$5.00 per person
