BOOK - Gleanings, A History of Campbellford / Seymour
By Campbellford / Seymour Heritage Society

Hardcover... 49.95 (C$)

Gleanings, A History of Campbellford/Seymour is a description of the community from the earliest settlement at the beginning of the nineteenth century to the present. It commemorates the one hundred and fiftieth anniversary of the establishment of the Township of Seymour and focuses on the important role which the Town of Campbellford played in the development of the area.

The upper Trent River has been and continues to be a major force in this development. People, places, and events are described in words and pictures, within the context of Ontario and Canadian history. However, the focus of the book remains the ordinary people, who, through their daily lives and activities, have made this and extraordinary place. While the overall direction and editing of the book has been under the auspices of the Campbellford-Seymour Heritage Society, the true authors are the individuals and groups who have provided numerous written submissions. It is the result of thousands of hours of work over several years, all of it voluntary, some by Heritage Society members, the rest by members of the community at large.

The book has 16 chapters covering everything from disasters, to people, sports, the military, culture, and the river valley. Also included are agriculture, business, transportation, organizations, churches and schools, and a special section on vignettes about ghost stories and other local legends.

The sports chapter tells about every sport played in the community, including the old-time wrestling that was once brought to town. As well, there is mention of all the hockey stars and the local sports figure, Kyle Petty, who participated at the 2000 Olympics in Australia.
