This day in our history
Provided by the Fort Erie Museum

1794 - Fort Erie, Newark (Niagara-on-the-Lake) and York (now Toronto) are cited as “the most distinguished” parts of the Province and most likely to “become places of consequence” in a letter on this day sent by a gentleman doing a tour through Upper and Lower Canada. (The Correspondence of Lieut. Gov. John Graves Simcoe, Vol. III. 1794-1795, Brig. Gen. E.A. Cruikshank, ed. Toronto: Ontario Historical Society, 1925 p. 191)

1930 - A newspaper report deems the Gilmore Road sewers useless, as they were installed at a depth of 3 to 4 feet instead of the recommended 8 feet – such depth needed to drain the cellars of homes along that road. (FEHM Files, Municipal Government)
