Sarah Holla, Acting Education Officer at the Goulbourn Museum, presented on the history of Goulbourn to our members this morning.
Sarah Holla shared the story of Ottawa’s oldest military settlement and early life in the former Goulbourn Township. Located just south of Stittsville in Ottawa's West End, Goulbourn Museum houses a diverse collection of artefacts and many interactive exhibitions. These include the 100th Regiment of Foot, dedicated to the soldiers who settled Goulbourn Township in 1818; Goulbourn Township's Pioneers, and early life in the communities.

Her entertaining and engaging presentation, entitled “What Went Down in Struggle Town?,” highlighted the development over the years of Stanley’s Corners at the corner of Flewelllyn and Huntley Roads and included historical photographs.
She was thanked by Grace Bell for her presentation.
