Happy New Year, Portland Ontario!

26 The Portland on the Rideau Historical Society has started gathering historic photos for placement in the website museum gallery. We will be trying each month to have a new opening page which will show historic photos of Portland people, area and goings-on. After a month they will be moved into the main body of  the gallery collection to be replaced with new items.

For January 2010 we are fortunate in having  family members Richard Richmond and  M. Wier as well as researchers Diane Haskins and H.  Cavagnolo provide many pictures of the Bolton-Lyon family and the Henry Ferris Bolton House on Highway 15, just south of Portland  [# 2756].   A few are previewed here  and many more are to be found in the Family section in the museum files  [left side of this web page].  Enjoy – and please start to assemble any historic photos you may have so that we can borrow them and place them on the website for all to see.
