Cultural and oral histories
This project is contributing to the Land Between's mandate through a focused study of a single township in the Land Between. Manvers Township, a part of Victoria County and now also part of the City of Kawartha Lakes, is a strong example of the heritage value and importance of rural townships across The Land Between. Note: The Land Between is a non-profit organization focused on the preservation of the land extending roughly from Georgian Bay, west to Kingston. It spans across eight ecodistricts identified by the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources, as well as seven counties including Simcoe, Muskoka, Haliburton, Victoria, Peterborough, Hastings, Lennox and Addington, and Frontenac., by Jessica Davidson. --, Includes: final research report; bibliography., Completed for: Leora Berman at the Kawartha Heritage Conservancy; Supervising Professor: John Wadland, Trent University; Trent Centre for Community-based education., Date of project submission: April 2007., Includes bibliographic references., CAST 204, Canada: the land, Canadian Studies, Community-based research project.
