The Lost Villages of the St. Lawrence
In partnership with the Hastings County Historical Society, the Belleville Public Library will be hosting another informative talk via Zoom titled "The Lost Villages of the St. Lawrence".
June 26, 1959 - Queen Elizabeth officially opened the St. Lawrence Seaway, the multi-billion dollar marine shipping route. But at what cost? This is the engaging story of the six Lost Villages and the three hamlets that were flooded to make way for the St. Lawrence Seaway. Jim Brownell, retired teacher and former M.P.P., will relate how thousands of people living along the river had to be relocated. Their homes now lay beneath Lake St. Lawrence.
