            Twenty-five years ago, a small group of volunteers calling themselves the Kawartha Region Arts and Heritage Society convinced the Village of Bobcaygeon to lease them the land to establish and operate Kawartha Settlers’ Village.

            The dream of establishing a living museum to

preserve the history and the development of the area began to become a reality.

            To kick start this special 25th-anniversary year, Kawartha Settlers’ Village is inviting individuals, groups, clubs, and businesses to help “pave the way” for the future with the installation of engraved bricks in the walkways of the Village.

            “The new, accessible, walkways will benefit all guests to the Village,” says Kawartha Settlers’ Village President, Al Ingram. “Proceeds from the sale of the bricks will be used to finance maintenance and restoration of the historical buildings and artifacts as well as continue our educational programs.” 

            You can buy a 4-by-8-inch brick for $50. Order forms are available at Kawartha Settlers’ Village, online, or at the Bobcaygeon Chamber of Commerce.

            The highlight of the Village Anniversary will be a special event Aug. 23 to celebrate past and current achievements. 

            The Village is also introducing these new programs to the season’s lineup: A Murder Mystery Evening on May 22nd and Movies in the Barn every Wednesday night in July and August. More information about these events will be released shortly.

            The official 25th season for Kawartha Settlers’ Village begins May 1, and is shaping up to be a memorable one.    To be a part of the future of the Village and for more details please visit www.settlersvillage.org.
