Prescott  – Prescott Heritage Committee Chair Suzanne Dodge began by welcoming the group that had assembled on a chilly morning for the unveiling and dedication of a historic plaque commemorating the history of the Sandy Hill Cemetery before turning the festivities over to Fraser Laschinger, Chair of the Sandy Hill Cemetery Board who shared the background of this important piece of Prescott heritage.

The Committee has embarked on a program of placing plaques on historic properties in Prescott in an effort to raise the consciousness of our shared heritage.   A small plaque has been placed on Prescott’s first designated property – The Forwarders’ Museum.

Fashioned by FusionCast, this one-of-a-kind bronze plaque, features the township logo in color.   The plaque has been placed near the entrance gate to Sandy Hill Cemetery located at 975 Edward Street in Prescott, sharing the Cemetery’s place in local history for all who pass.
