This year, 2012, has proved to be very successful for the Oshawa Historical Society, and we send a great Thank You to our dedicated members who attended our monthly Speaker Series.
November’s Speaker Series was our annual Research Symposium, and staff from the Oshawa Community Museum presented research on their research into the history of Henry House and the Henry Family. We also officially launched our latest publication If This House Could Talk: The Story of Henry House!
Jennifer Weymark, Archivist, presented on researching the history of the house and Lot 7 Broken Front Concession, trying to establish the history of Henry House, sorting out fact from myth. Lisa Terech, Programs Assistant and OHS Membership Co-ordinator, told stories of members of the Henry Family who are laid to rest in the Harbour Pioneer Cemetery, and summer student Madison Cawker talked about her experience designing the book.
Below are pictures from the meeting, and don’t forget to buy your copy of the book If This House Could Talk from the Oshawa Community Museum or from our online store: http://www.lulu.com/shop/oshawa-community-museum/if-this-house-could-talk-the-story-of-the-henry-house/paperback/product-20400474.html
