The Stittsville News Turns 55 Today

Over the years the Museum has received excellent coverage in the Stittsville News including this front page photo from February 1992 taken at the Museum's "Living Off The Land" Exhibit at its Heritage Day Open House. 
The very first issue of the Stittsville News was published on this day 55 years ago.

The newspaper was founded in 1957 by Howard Maguire and in 1975 John Curry became the owner. John has been dedicated to telling Stittsville’s stories ever since. Although the Stittsville News was sold to Metroland News in 2011, John continues to be an ambassador for his community and can regularly be found around town with pen and paper in hand.  Over the years Goulbourn Museum has benefitted greatly from John’s dedication to spreading the word of our news and events. 

Happy Anniversary to the Stittsville News, and a special thank you to John Curry for truly putting the word “community” in this community newspaper.
