This week I received an email from a lady who owns a former schoolhouse at 6613 Dwyer Hill Road, just south of Rogers Stevens Drive in the old Marlborough Township. She is looking for information about her schoolhouse. I suggested she go to Rideau Branch, Ottawa Archives that has information on the one-room schoolhouses in old Marlborough and Rideau Township. The archives are located in North Gower and are open every Tuesday 9:30 to 4:30 p.m. 6581 Fourth Line Rd (Main St.). The telephone number is 489-2926. If anyone has information about this schoolhouse, I would be happy to hear from you.
