COVID-19 PROGRAMMING FOR THE PETERBOROUGH HISTORICAL SOCIETY
 

The Government of Ontario and Public Health regulations for the Peterborough area govern the events and activities permitted by PHS and Hutchison House Museum. The PHS and Hutchison House Museum will continue to plan their programs and events to keep well within the required safety limits. For details of Hutchison House events and programs for 2021, please visit the Hutchison House website: www.hutchisonhouse.ca.
 

 

 


PHS Monthly Meetings and Speakers Program go Virtual
 

In face of the challenges and continued risks of resuming on-site monthly meetings, we have decided instead to produce monthly virtual PHS Talks that may be viewed on the YouTube channel of Hutchison House Museum.  The plan is to schedule them to be posted on the third Tuesday of the month, the traditional date of the regular monthly meetings. Notices of the talks will be publicized in the usual manner, including on this webpage.
 

 

“The Many Working Lives of Robert Romaine”

Ken Brown
 

A recognized specialist in Peterborough business history, Ken Brown will examine the successful career of Robert Romaine.  Truly a businessman of many parts Romaine was a successful manufacturer of bricks, editor and publisher of the Peterborough Review, inventor of innovative farm machinery and, famously, printer of the Romaine Map of Peterborough, an invaluable archival source. Ken Brown’s publications include The Canadian Canoe Company and the Early Peterborough Canoe Factories, The Peterborough Potteries, and The Invention of the Board Canoe.
