The Toronto Carrying Place: A Shared Tradition, Saturday Sept. 26, 9:00am –3:00pm, Old Mill Inn

CarryingPosterWe encourage you to attend this WTJHS co-sponsored event – working with Etobicoke, Swansea and York Pioneer Historical Societies.

Come join us to hear academics, authors, and local historians present on and discuss such diverse topics as the Tkaronto or Humber Portage, the Iroquoian and Algonquian origins of the Toronto region, as well as First Nations’ encounters with Étienne Brûlé, Samuel de Champlain, and other Franco-European explorers and traders in 17th century Ontario. This event will be taking place at the Old Mill Inn, with outdoor “living history” theatrical installations scheduled to follow immediately after at designated points along the Pan Am Path at both Étienne Brûlé and King’s Mill Parks. This event is FREE and open to all members of the public, with light refreshments to be provided free of charge.
