What we commonly refer to as “The Ward” is probably the least-known part of the old city. In this illustrated lecture, retired professor Terry Crowley will walk us through parts of Ward One Guelph and reveal some of the heritage gems to be found for those who venture on the quest.

Dr. Crowley, a resident of Guelph since 1971, moved to the City to work in the History Department at the University of Guelph. He served as the department chair from 2003 to 2008 and retired in 2010. Terry is an award-winning historian who has authored more than a dozen books in Canadian history.
