UXBRIDGE: Residents will have a chance to take a guided tour through the history of Uxbridge on Saturday, June 4.
From 10 a.m. until 1:30 p.m.,the Heritage Uxbridge advisory committee will be offering free 15 min. horse and wagon tours past many of the Township’s heritage buildings. The rides, which will run rain or shine, are being supplied by Durward’s Farm. They begin at Trinity United Church at 20 First Ave.
Heritage Service Coordinator, Maggie Mackenzie, told The Standard that this event is meant to give people a greater understanding of the history around them.
“I thought it was important that the committee do some outreach work so that we can share the heritage of Uxbridge as well as bring greater awareness of Heritage Uxbridge,” she said.
According to the committee, the settlement of Uxbridge began in 1806 when the Quakers from Pennsylvania arrived.
