The Historical Society of St. Catharines Online Lecture: “Off to Paradise Grove: A Railway History of Niagara-on-the-Lake 1854-1959”
November 25, 2021 @ 7:30 pm
Presented by author Peter Mulcaster of Niagara-on-the-Lake, based on his book.
The third steam railway to be built in Ontario, then known as Upper Canada, came to Niagara-on-the-Lake in 1854. As with many railways of that era, it went through a period of various owners and financial instability. Towards the end of the nineteenth century, the steam railway, then run by the Canada Southern Railway and subsequently by the Michigan Central Railroad, became established on a firmer footing and some economic development ensued.
