Waterville Will Have Its Her­itage Cir­cuit!

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM -

Our brochure is ti­tled The Legacy of Waterville. The project was ini­ti­ated by the Waterville His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety. The re­search and the edit­ing were en­trusted to his­to­rian Anne Dansereau. The mem­bers of the His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety are very proud of the re­sult and are con­vinced it will also be prized by his­tory buffs. The cir­cuit presents some forty res­i­dences or build­ings. Come dis­cover the dis­tinc­tive char­ac­ter of each her­itage build­ing and the im­por­tance of the in­hab­i­tants that made of Waterville a city of hu­man prox­im­ity.

This ac­tiv­ity is part of the 140th an­niver­sary of Waterville. While tour­ing to see these beau­ti­ful build­ings, you will learn about Mr. Wyman, the first mayor; Doc­tor Colquoun, the founder of the Bon­nie View golf club; Mrs. Doris Gale, an an­tique dealer and daugh­ter of Doc­tor Colquoun and so many oth­ers who marked the his­tory of Waterville.

Two buses will be avail­able for the tour. You can also tour at your own pace. For ex­am­ple, you can walk through the cir­cuit in town and use your ve­hi­cle for the Milby and Hunt­ingville sec­tors.

You are cor­dially in­vited to the pre­sen­ta­tion of our brochure The Legacy of Waterville, on Oc­to­ber 15th 2016, at 1:00 p.m. at the Catholic Church, 360 Comp­ton Street E. Our Borchure are at very af­ford­able price. And the Tour Bus is Free

For those who would pre­fer the bus tour, please re­serve your seats as soon as pos­si­ble by call­ing 819 837-2034 or 819 578-3164.

We hope to see many of you for this oc­ca­sion and we are ea­ger to guide you through the dis­cov­ery of the his­tor­i­cal and ar­chi­tec­tural trea­sures of Waterville.
