Authors Elizabeth Muir and Valerie Verity announce the launch of their new book entitled:
Friends of the Macdonell-Williamson House Inc. /
Les Amis de la maison Macdonell-Williamson Inc.:
A Developmental History 1991 - 2011
It documents the twenty year (1991-2011) developmental history of the Friends of the Macdonell-Williamson House Inc. Both are founding members of the non-profit charity, which has brought recognition to the Macdonell-Williamson House (c 1817) located on the Ottawa River in East Hawkesbury near the village of Pointe-Fortune Quebec. The 178 pages volume gives credit to the many volunteers, staff, Macdonell and Williamson descendants who have devoted numerous hours to restore the House and property to its present grandeur.
The historic site has become a destination for many visitors over the years featuring a General Store, Tea Room, informative displays, live music, relevant history lectures, workshops and fund raising events such as auctions and appraisal shows. The book contains details and photos of many such events and co-operative efforts by the volunteers working with the Ontario Heritage Trust, the owners of the site.
Price - $25.00 plus postage charges. For information on how to acquire an autographed copy, the authors can be reached through Macdonnel- Williamson House at 613-676-2228, or by email at email@example.com.
Hours: 11:00 am to 4:00 pm.
