St. Jacobs - Discover Its Colourful Connections to the Past!

Discover the Village of 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 his first article,  find out how the past is all around you in St. Jacobs.

 

In this second article, 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.

Next time you visit St. Jacobs, consider taking a leisurely walk around town to see significant buildings, sites, and evidence of its early pioneering beginnings  in its picturesque downtown and along quiet side streets.  Download our free historic walking map.   Shops, restaurants and most exhibits will be OPEN - even on holiday weekends this summer.  Why not plan a visit soon!
