Zorra Heritage Committee – Harrington Grist Mill Gathering – Wednesday, May 1 at 7pm!

Hello Everyone,

Please see this guest post from the Zorra Heritage Committee:

The Zorra Heritage Committee (ZHC) invites everyone to join them in exploring the Harrington Grist Mill on Wednesday, May 1 at 7pm. You do not need to be a member of ZHC to attend. This is a free meeting and is open to the public.

The mill, while owned by the Upper Thames River Conservation Authority, is operated by the Harrington & Area Community Association (HACA). HACA has been actively working for over two decades to preserve the mill. Two knowledgeable “millers” will be present to speak to the history of this mill and to the significance of mills in the development of early settlements throughout Oxford County in the 19th century.

The Zorra Heritage Committee (ZHC) is open to anyone interested in identifying and preserving heritage within the Township of Zorra. The committee seeks to uncover historical resources related to the Township’s past and to participate in activities and events that make these histories accessible to the public. ZHC is a committee of the Beachville District Historical Society and meets monthly, usually at 7 p.m. on the first Wednesday of each month except July and August.  We alternate, one month with a business meeting and the following month with an activity related to our heritage.

You are welcome to join ZHC, whether or not you live in Zorra. Begin by taking out a membership at https://beachvilledistrictmuseum.com/membership/bdm-membership

If you have an event, pictures and articles concerning the history of Oxford County that you would like published on the Society’s blog please email us at info@oxhs.ca
