This week in the Kitchissippi Times is the first of my new regular column called "Early Days", which will be published every second issue, covering - you guessed it - local history.
This week's column is one which I'd been looking forward to sharing - the little-known history of my neighbourhood, Wellington Village. It includes an amazing story of how the lots were originally sold off, and how the community began.
Please check it out at http://kitchissippi.com/history-of-wellington-village-ottawa/
In the meantime, I am working on more posts for this blog, I apologize that there has been a bit of a lull in fresh content. I've had my hands full on a major renovation project, and have sadly had to put all my (much more fun) history work on a bit of a hold. I expect to have a new post up in the next few days.
Thanks for reading! Cheers!
