September Speaker Series: The Hyams Brothers and the Death of William Wells

WellsInspired by a visit to Oshawa’s Union Cemetery, the story of the death of William Wells in 1893 has all the earmarks of a fascinating thriller; love, death, betrayal and more than enough mystery. And the best part of the story is it’s true!  Was William’s death a case of pre-meditated murder or merely a tragic accident? Join Laura Suchan and Bill Eby as they share the story of William Wells and the trial of the Hyams brothers, who were ultimately acquitted in his death.

The Oshawa Historical Society’s September Speaker Series is taking place Tuesday, September 17 at 7PM. The Speaker Series will be held at the Arts Resource Centre, located at 45 Queen Street, Oshawa. Admission to the Oshawa Historical Society Speaker Series is $3 or FREE for members of the Oshawa Historical Society.
