The Haliburton Echo is pleased to announce the release of the historical non-fiction book “A Journey Through Glamorgan’s Past” by Elva Bates. Longtime cottagers will remember Elva Bates as being the clerk-treasurer and reeve of Glamorgan Township. She has been exploring and writing about the history of the communities in Glamorgan Township such as the one that was along the Minnicock Lake Road (which included about 22 homes, a school and an orphanage) as well as other small communities in Glamorgan township. The book is available at Under Cover in Haliburton, and Dream Weaver in Wilberforce.
