Touring the Past
Bob Lyons / Kirby Books


6 x 9 - 186 Pages

Subtitle: A Guide to Old Mines, Ghost Towns and Historic Sites of North Hastings

Compiled from four years of newspaper articles in the Bancroft Times, columnist and author Bob Lyons offers this guide to enjoying the history of the Bancroft region.

TOURING THE PAST offers histories of hamlets from Coe Hill to Maynooth, as well as early days from many favourites cottage lakes, such as Baptiste, Paudash and Papineau.

Bob Lyons’ history is gathered from countless interviews with area seniors combined with searches of archives and historical records. The popular columns have been re-written with reader responses, making a fresh new approach to the unique stories of northern Hastings and eastern Haliburton counties. Six maps lead to fascinating country drives, or a walking tour of historic buildings in Bancroft.
