BOOK - On the Edge of History: Dorland's Creek and the Mills
By E. D. Taylor Ashton
Published by Hermitage Publishing Corporation, Ottawa, 1996 (First edition)

Hardcover... 32.95 (C$)

On The Edge of History is the story of Dorland's Creek and the village through which it flows. On early maps of Prince Edward County, Ontario showing Dorland's Creek, the village was named Pleasant Valley, now known as Hillier. The story begins with a reference to a prehistoric village on the creek and tells of the building of the mills that depended on the stream for water power. The first land grant was granted on August 4, 1795. The history continues from those early dates into the twentieth century. The book includes many high quality black and white and colour photos, production quality is excellent.

We've recently sourced a limited number of first editions of this local history of Dorland's Creek and The Mills that was published in 1996. The books are new, uncirculated copies.

About the author:
Edith Taylor Ashton was raised in Prince Edward County, and received a B.A. degree in Art History and Anthropology from Carleton University. This fine book is the result of several years of research at archives, museums, libraries, registry offices, and through personal interviews.
