We got rich local heritage and ancestry.

Rich local heritage and ancestry.  Many stories are at risk of being lost while important genealogical and War of 1812 information is being uncovered.  Military historians now have a complete list of those who fell at the Battle of the Longwoods at Battle Hill. 

Recent history is interesting too.  The Twin Valleys School Community was a community unto itself just south of Wardsville during the 1970s.  The residents of that community still keep in touch and web sites are devoted to sharing pictures and memories.  

The Shamrock car was built by the first registered car company in Canada, established by the Mimna brothers, two stonemasons from Wardsville, Ont. The car is in a small museum in Kingsville.  Excerpt from Nov 28th Inventory
