Trent Valley Archives (TVA) is pleased to invite the Peterborough and surrounding community to their Open House, on Sat., Sept. 18th from 1 – 4 pm. at 567 Carnegie Ave. to celebrate the renovations to the research room and the completion of Victorian map restorations.
TVA houses many maps and atlases which together inform key elements of our past. They range from wall maps of area railroads to the 1846 Sandford Fleming map of 1846 to the 1875 Bird’s Eye View of Peterborough. Two of these, County of Victoria, 1877 and Midland Railway of Canada and Connections, 1882 have been restored through the efforts of Candace Snoddon, intern from Fleming College’s conservation program.
If you’d like to see the research room renovations which were funded through a grant from New Horizons for Seniors, are curious about how our area evolved and changed over time or just have an interest in history or genealogy, come out to investigate the many resources from across five counties that are available at the Archives, the ever-improving genealogical resources and the many amazing books available for purchase.
Since this event will be held partly indoors, masks are required and efforts will be made to keep everyone safe by using physical distancing principles as well as limiting the number of people in the building at a time.
