The Unveiling Ceremony for the Historical Plaque

  • Marmora Tourism Centre 9 Matthew Street Marmora Canada (map)

To Commemorate the Miners of Marmora and District

Come out and hear the stories of the early mining history of this region, from the earliest iron works to the spread of mining to the neighbouring settlements. Hear the stories of the dirty and dangerous work fo the miners, many newly arrived from England and Europe. These mining settlements gave rise to the area communities that we know and cherish today.

Are your ancestors minors from the area? We want to hear from you!
