Presentation - Tales from the General Store

Local author Tom Graham will speak to the Merrickville and District Historical Society at 7:00 pm at the Merrickville Legion on February 26, 2019 about his forthcoming book, Tales from the General Store: The Untold History of Bishop’s Mills. In addition to using source material, Tom has gathered stories representing the oral history of the Village and eye-witness accounts of critical events such as the Cheese Factory Explosion, and the Great Fire of 1943 and combined them with tales from the author’s seven years behind the counter at the General Store. Using photographs and images from his own collection, Tom will talk about his efforts to capture the oral traditions of this 170 year old Village and portray them accurately in his book. Admission is free
