Heritage Tour – MacKenzie Cemetery

Our tour is still on for Sunday,  July 24th starting at 3 PM at MacKenzie Cemetery.

For those who want to go directly to the site early:

  • Take Highway 326  northbound from Earltown Village or southbound from Brule Corner
  • Approximately 2 Km north of Earltown Village or 4 km south west of MacBain’s Corner, (East Earltown),  you come to Knox Cemetery.
  • On the opposite side of the road,  a gravel road leads north up a long hill for approximately 1 km.
  • At the top of the hill,  take the branch to the left.  MacKenzie Cemetery is approximately 1 km. in this road.

There is no parking lot. However volunteers will be on hand to assist you parking along the road.  A private farm is at the end of this road and we ask that you respect their privacy and turn at the designated point.

The presentation will be approximately one hour.  It will contain a broad review of the settlement of the surrounding area but will mostly focus on the settlers buried therein who experienced the infamous Highland Clearances first hand with Earltown being the land of contentment after a very distressing experience.
