Welcome to the Hammonds Plains Historical Society
June 2021 Update:
As the vaccination rate improves and the phased in reopening provincial plan unfolds, the Hammonds Plains Historical Society is making plans to hosting in person general meetings once again. At our June Board of Directors meeting, it was agreed that we would target November 29th for our first post pandemic meeting.
It was also decided to not hold an AGM until next May. The current Board of Directors will stay in place until that time. The Board of Directors will continue to meet during the summer and into the fall.
We have develop a draft of a potential future podcast on our web site. It is listed under the ‘Plains Chronicles’, which is in the Resources section of the web site. The first Podcast takes a look at Hammonds Plains in 1867, at the time of confederation. We are encouraging folks to view and offer feedback via our e-mail account. More podcasts will follow in the coming months.
We will be continuing to produce local historical write-ups for the ‘Neighbours of Hammonds Plains’ magazine. You can look forward to articles about the Hammonds Plains Gold Mines, the Upgrading of the Hammonds Plains Road and the history of Atlantic Speedway in current and upcoming editions. Visit past articles by viewing the Echoes of the Past series under Resources on our webpage.
