Home to one of Oshawa’s earliest lakeshore pioneers, Robinson House has a long, and often debated, history.  When was it built, was it ever a ‘tavern’, and who lived in this home?  All of these questions will be answered at January’s Speaker Series as we welcome Oshawa Community Museum staff who will share the fascinating history of one of Oshawa’s most architecturally unique homes.  This presentation will highlight the new research which was uncovered while writing If This House Could Talk: The Story of Robinson House, Book 2 of a 3 Book Series highlighting the history of the homes that comprise the Oshawa Community Museum.

The Oshawa Historical Society’s January Speaker Series is taking place Tuesday, January 21 at 7PM. The meetings are held at the Oshawa Public Library, McLaughlin Branch Auditorium, located at 65 Bagot Street, Oshawa. Admission to the Oshawa Historical Society Speaker Series is $3 or FREE for members of the Oshawa Historical Society.
