UNVEILING HISTORICAL PLAQUE TO COMMEMORATE THOMASBURG SPRING

 

A significantly large crowd gathered in Thomasburg Saturday afternoon to witness the unveiling of an historical plaque that tells the story of the spring. 

For almost 200 years, since the spring was discovered in 1821, horses and travellers have been wetting their whistle at the Thomasburg spring. Thomasburg was named after three settlers: Thomas Clare, Thomas Graham and Thomas Nicol.
