Tay Valley, Lanark County handy maps

The recent launch of the historical mapping project,shows the settlement of the soldiers and settlers by individual lot, concession, names of the original and subsequent families and telling their stories for a lasting on-line legacy on the history of the current municipalities.
You can plan where to eat, play or stay, as well as viewing the land allotments.
