    Cumberland Township History Publication

    Along the old Montreal Road, and towards the south, lies the historic township of Cumberland. It has undergone considerable change over the past two centuries: from rugged wilderness, to bustling villages; from industrious farmsteads, to vibrant urban communities.

    ”Glimpses of Cumberland: XIXth and XXth Centuries” pays tribute to this rich history through stories and images, as told and shared by scores of local contributors. It was a true community effort – 200 years in the making – that highlights Bearbrook, Navan, Sarsfield, Vars, Leonard, and Cumberland Village to Orléans, among others. The City of Ottawa’s Cultural Development and Initiatives Section, together with the Cumberland Township Historical Society, launched the book on Saturday, October 1, 2016 at the Cumberland Heritage Village Museum.

    The soft-cover book, which is illustrated by some 140 images, is available in English (287 pages) and French (300 pages) editions for $30 (including tax). To purchase a copy, please complete the Book Order Form and email it to: renegilles68@gmail.com. There will also be an e-book available by the end of October (check back soon for more details).
