The Railway Museum recently received funding for The Smiths Falls Railway History Project, a community-based project, highlighting our town’s rich railway history.
The Smiths Falls Railway History Project is a community-based project presented by the Railway Museum of Eastern Ontario, highlighting our town’s rich railway history. Working with local students, it will capture stories and memories from the men and women who have been impacted by the railway in Smiths Falls. It will also see the development of an exhibit featured at the museum focusing on the history of railroading in the community as well as an interactive website and education program for elementary students.
Do you know someone?
The museum is looking for members of the community to assist with the project. Do you know someone in your family, a friend or relative who worked on the railway? Or have a story to tell? An experience to share? What was our town like at the height of the railway? How were local businesses affected? We want to know and we need your help.
Contact the museum if you would like to share your story or if you would like to volunteer with this project.
Project partners: Ministry of Tourism and Culture, Town of Smiths Falls, TVCogeco, Canadian Pacific Railway, UCDSB
