George King Chisholm (1814-1874)served in the Gore militia during the Upper Canada Rebellion and the Fenian raids. Chisholm served as reeve of Trafalgar Township from 1830 to 1852. In 1841, he was appointed sergeant-at-arms for the Legislative Assembly of the Province of Canada. In 1849, he was injured during riots when the Rebellion Losses Bill was passed. He resigned in 1854 and was elected to represent Halton in the legislative assembly. He was elected as the first mayor of Oakville in 1857, serving until 1862; he served another term in 1873
- In 1971-1972, Parks Canada photographed those buildings that were 100 or more years old. This Canadian Inventory of Heritage Buildings was a Centennial Project.
The Trafalgar Township Historical Society has worked with Parks Canada and Library and Archives Canada to find these photographs in the area of Trafalgar Township and the city of Oakville, Ontario. The collection will grow as we have time to collect and prepare the images.
The TTHS is also sending the images to the Town of Oakville Heritage Planners to increase local availability and to ensure local preservation.
Each TTHS internet record will show the back of the identifying information card first. This is to prevent any errors in reading the handwritten address held up on a clipboard for each address - we have noted that sometimes the address number is illegible or incorrect.
At the top of each TTHS record, you will find "pages" to click on to view the various photographs.
All TTHS records in this collection can be found in one step by clicking on the "Groups" link on the right of your screen, "Parks Canada. Canadian Inventory of Heritage Buildings, 1970-1972. Trafalgar Township & Oakville."
