Enerals Griffin and Griffin House
For this program Ann Jarvis will give a presentation on Griffin House. Ann Jarvis is a retired teacher from the Hamilton Board of Education. She has worked on getting Heritage designation from the federal government for Griffin House and became a full time curator for Griffin House about 3 years ago and retired last fall. Ann Jarvis has become a ”mover and a shaker" in heritage affairs, particularly with Black history and the house of Enerals Griffin, a guest worker from Virginia, who escaped slavery to Canada in 1834.
Free admission - Everyone Welcome
We need your help
The Flamborough Archives is working on three projects and we are asking for your help .
The first is a planned book on the history behind the names of communities that exist, or did exist at one time, in Flamborough.
The second project is a compilation of the businesses in Flamborough, with an emphasis on Waterdown, from around 1850 onwards.
The third project is an inventory of street names in Waterdown, and the history behind the name.
We are looking for any material which would help with this research - photos, stories, advertisements or flyers etc. We would be happy to scan your original photos if you don't want to part with them.
If you have ANYTHING that can help, please contact the Archives at (905) 540-5161 or email@example.com
