Pioneer Memory Tour
Written as a guide it would provide detailed info about specific points of historical interest for the Dorset area. This guide would enable visitors and residents to plan their own leisurely walk, motor or boat tour to discover places, past and present that have historical significance.
To share the accomplishments, challenges, and hardships of pioneer living as well as providing updated information about historical events in the area. This goal would be achieved through:
- Heritage Day (July 1st Saturday of the holiday weekend, annual)
- Bread making, butter churning, jam making
- Good Old School Days
- Emergencies on ‘Pill Hill’, Dorset’s First Aid Post 1920
- Trapping on the frontier
- Memories of a steamship Captain… Iroquois, Mohawk Belle, Bigwin, or Maple Leaf
