The History of the Stephen Merrick House

Join us as we hear the personal story of uncovering the history of one of Merrickville's most recognizable houses, the Stephen Merrick House. "Exploring the First Hundred Years in a Historical House -- and what to do when the walls can't talk" is Gail Ellison's exploration of the lives of the occupants of the house and their intersection with the history of Merrickville and Canada. Interlaced throughout the presentation are tips on how to access resources, validate the "facts," compile and potentially publish the history of an old house.
