Local History in Hampton Iona

“For those of you interested in the history of Hampton Iona, David Allston (a local historian) has written an extensive article on the history of Mulvihill and Lyman Streets.  These two small streets run between Hilson Avenue and Kirkwood Avenue just south of Richmond Road.  The history of these streets go back more than 100 years. To find the article, you will have to scroll down part way through the blog. Don’t miss the latest blog entry on how half the area of Hampton Iona almost became a cemetery.  Even almost 100 years ago, Hampton Iona was an area of intense interest by developers and landowners.   Some things never change.”

These fascinating articles can be found at http://kitchissippimuseum.blogspot.ca/.

Thanks to David Allston for writing these articles and his other work on preserving the history of Kitchissippi and our knowledge of our history.
