“Tracking our ancester, Alex Montgomery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

In August 2012, My sister and I and our spouses visited the Haileybury Museum.
We were most interested in visiting the home-town area of our mother, Margie Montgomery, and her family. Alex and his wife Annie and their two young boys arrived in New Liskeard in 1902.
Both men at the museum were very helpful. Stories that our mother had told us came to life as we toured the exhibits. Most dramatic was the great fire of the early 1920s. We had heard about the tragedies and about people wading out into the lake.
The museum had records about the trolley line and Alex being motorman, inspector, etc.
There were many items of interest that preserve the history of the area. The antique fire engine is a treasure. If you go there, you'll hear about the Hardy Boys' mysteries.
