“There is something about the situation of Marmora that leads one to seriously reflect that the Creator would be somewhat disappointed if man had not built it here.”
- Editor Marmora Herald, 1924
For over thirty years, the Marmora Historical Foundation has been a part of our community. We thank our curator, Cathie Jones, and as well, all of those kind contributors who know that our past is too precious to be allowed to just slip away.
This website shows some of the donations in our collection. Keep them coming. It's only a matter of time until it's history!
A final thank you to the Toronto Dominion Bank, and its many managers who have kindly provided the space for our collection and our home in town.
WHO ARE THE MINERS IN OUR LOGO?
They are taken from a sketch by Susanna Moodie called "The First Mine in Ontario at Marmora"
