Brockville is a town along the St. Lawrence that is quite charming. The 1000 Island Parkway ends a little to the west of Brockville and if you aren’t careful you will end up on the major highway 401.
I took Brockmere Cliff Drive just in time before I came to 401. It is a right turn after E. Townline Rd. I almost missed it. This road meets up with Hwy 2 and that takes you into Brockville.
I found the Brockville Museum and parked my car and was surprised to find it open. I didn’t dally because I had to keep moving. My plan was to have dinner at the Upper Canada Village which closed at 5 pm and time was slipping by. http://www.brockvillemuseum.com/museum/
Next to the museum was the marina and a nice little park where I could watch the boats out on the St. Lawrence River. Storm clouds are collecting!
Boats out on the river.
Geese were also enjoying the water.
Downtown Brockville’s main square and I wish I had more time to explore!
Brockville was the home of Duncan Darby Macdonald and the MacDonald Research Centre. Duncan did a great many books on Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry and lots of charts and compilation of various families including McDonalds. He died awhile back but his collection is with Global Genealogy. A great many of his works are with the Family History Library and many other archives, libraries and genealogical societies. They spell his name in a variety of ways and it can get confusing.
