February 15, 2011 - Cantley Century Homes

Cantley 1889
'Century Homes of Cantley' event at La Grange de la Gatineau: Michael Rosen (Vice-president, Cantley 1889) , Bob McClelland (Director, Cantley 1889 and speaker at the event), Margaret Phillips (President, Cantley 1889) and Steve Harris (Mayor of Cantley).

Over 90 people attended this public, free event held at Cantley's La Grange de la Gatineau. Bob McClelland's talk and slide show told of 2 churches and 11 of the community's oldest homes, many of which have been in the same family since they were built over 100 years ago. The question period and the discussions afterwards by the displays and refreshments indicated how interested Cantley citizens are in their roots. In attendance were some Cantley residents who have lived here for over 90 years, Cantley-ans whose families have lived here since the 19th century, as well as many newcomers who, that evening, discovered the history of their new land and homes - see poster.
