Jul 08, 2008 — Fifty years ago, whole towns along parts of the St. Lawrence River disappeared under the rising waters of the Seaway. Over 500 structures were rescued from these "Lost Villages". Some were moved to Morrisburg, Ontario, where they formed the core of a new heritage park that opened in 1961. Today, Upper Canada Village is a major destination, known for its interactive presentation of regional life in 1866. Ottawa Correspondent Lucy Martin spent an eventful day there, on June 21st, exploring and enjoying the big dedication of the village's first new display in 14 years. The just-opened Ancient Brethren Lodge will demonstrate how fraternal societies helped their communities grow and prosper.
