This from Leann Thompson
The Thompson family is celebrating 175 years on our farm in Galbraith this year. We are having a family gathering in August to celebrate. I was wondering if you would be willing to post a request on your page on behalf of our family. We’re looking to see if anyone in the community has old photos, stories, memories of Black Rock that they would be willing to share with us.
If you are willing, perhaps people could comment and I could reach out to them for more information (ex. copy of the photo). .
Thank you for your consideration,
The Bridge across the Indian River on Galbraith Rd. is being replaced this summer and a detour to our park will be in place for the next 9 weeks. The following is our suggested route to get here if coming from Almonte or Carleton Place. It will add about 4 km to your visit.
