  • Cloyne & District Historical Society (CDHS)

    Our significant program is for those who are interested in the history of the area, those who are curious about local genealogy, those wanting to volunteer in a meaningful way, and newcomers wanting to join the community by meeting new friends. We meet on the third Monday of the month, usually in the Barrie Hall on the east side of Highway 41, next to the Museum. Join us.
       

    April 16. Monday. (Postponed until April 23rd because of the storm).Until now, not much has ever been documented about the Mazinaw-Pringle Tramway, a transport system that joined the 2 lakes.  Its’ purpose was to send logs from the Mississippi watershed to the Moira River watershed in the nineteenth century. Steve Manders, a geographic-historian discovered and unearthed many relics that he found there in this past year.  He is giving them to the Museum, and has written his story for us.  He will unveil his discoveries at this meeting, and we anticipate a large crowd.  

    May 19. Saturday. We really are on-board with the 3 R's,....Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.  Our annual Yard Sale has grown to from a singular CDHS event to a fun-filled community day with many yard sales that stretch from Denbigh to Kaladar. on the Saturday of the Victoria Day Weekend.    We really need your "stuff.", your children's "stuff", and your neighbours' "stuff".   Bring it to the Barrie Hall in Cloyne on Friday May 18th from 9AM to noon.  The sale is on Saturday the 19th and starts at 9AM. We look forward to having everyone donate gently used articles.  

    May 21. Monday. The Kaladar Hotel is now just a memory.  We are inviting the community to come out to listen to, and tell tales about this wonderful old historic landmark. Former owner Andy Anderson will join us and speak about the Hotel. This event, (with refreshments) is for everybody. and starts at 1PM in the Barrie Hall in Cloyne. 

    June 18th. Monday. Our members are keen to go on bus trips, as we learned at our January meeting.  You are welcome to bring your friends. Save the date, Monday June 18th for a trip to the Kingston Penitentiary Museum.  (not to be confused with the Kingston Penitentiary Tour).  This Museum has won all kinds of awards, from The Kingston Chamber of Commerce, Rand McNally, and Trip Advisor.  We shall have more details about the price, the bus times and the luncheon arrangements, later.  

    June 23rd. Friday. Come down to the Museum Opening, to have a hot dog and see our latest model exhibits of the Mazinaw-Pringle Tramway.  We  start at 11:30 so welcome the summer with this always fun-filled get together.

    July 16rh. Monday. Our members-only pot-luck luncheon shall be at Marg Axford and Ian Brumell's home this year.  Gather at 11:30AM for a noon lunch.  Bring your pot, your utensils and plate.   Good times.
