Discover St. Jacobs' Colourful Connections to the Past

Discover St. Jacobs' connection to the past in this series of articles written by Rych Mills, writer for The Record. Read them and get well-researched insights into some of the people, places and things which had significance in the village, and which tie in to Canada's  confederation and its 150th celebrations this year.


In this article,  find out how the past is all around you in St. Jacobs.


Get a glimpse into the village's schoolhouse and the teachers who taught there.  The Schoolhouse is still in existence today, albeit much modernized to house a serene space for private functions, and as a venue for theatre productions.

Perhaps these articles will inspire you to take a leisurely walk around town with our historic walking map to see evidence of its early pioneering beginnings  which you can still spot today in its picturesque downtown and quiet side streets.
