    Glimpses of Cumberland Township

    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 Township: For the Honour of Our Ancestors” pays tribute to the former township’s XIXth and XXth century history through stories and images, as told and shared by local contributors. It is a true community effort – 200 years in the making – that highlights Bearbrook, Navan, Sarsfield, Vars, Leonard, and Cumberland Village to Orléans, among others.

    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). Copies of the book can be purchased at the following locations:
