NVDHS will have a booth in the arena at the Orono Fair again this year. We will be featuring ‘Great Lakes Shipping’ with the emphasis on Captain Gibson and the ship, Ariadne, out of the Port of Newcastle. Many photos and Captain Gibson’s diary will be among the items on display. Don’t miss the opportunity to visit the display and learn about the exciting times of the past!

NVDHS General Meeting October 2

7 p.m. Newcastle Community Hall

At our October 2 meeting, Grant Karcich, an Oshawa author, will present a talk about the Lost Trails in this area. These are the old Indian trails that went from the lakeshore back into the lands further north. Join us to find out more about a fascinating bit of local history.

Remembrance Display

During November there will be a military display in the historical room as a reminder to always remember the sacrifice that Newcastle men made during both wars – photos, uniforms, artifacts. Leslie Wilson will head up the design of this display, with the curators’ committee doing the legwork.
