Canada Village welcomes addition
Fifty years ago, whole towns along parts of the
St. Lawrence River disappeared under the rising waters of the Seaway. Over 500
structures were rescued from these "Lost Villages". Some were moved to Morrisburg,
Ontario, where they formed the core Upper Canada Village.
Today, it is a major destination, known for its interactive
presentation of regional life in 1866. Ottawa Correspondent Lucy Martin spent
an eventful day there, enjoying the dedication
of the village's first new display in 14 years. The just-opened Ancient Brethren
Lodge will demonstrate how fraternal societies helped their communities prosper.
