The recorded history of Whitewater Region stretches
back over 400 years, and artifacts collected from the banks of the Ottawa river
have been dated at up to 5,000 years old. This exciting history simply cannot
be shown in a museum, and so we have put together several web pages that you
may print and take with you on a self-guided tour of the region. We ask that
you respect local property laws and abide by the principle of taking only
pictures and leaving each site as you find it.
Each year in celebration of Heritage Week, The
Whitewater Historical Society asks our members to submit a place of interest.
We will continue to expand this section of the site as a year-round service to
those who might want to explore the history of Whitewater Region. We encourage
all interested people to submit an article and picture of interest for possible
publishing on this page. You may
your submissions or mail them to Ross Museum, 2022 Foresters Falls Rd, ON
All submissions will be scanned and returned.
