STANLEY CORNERS
(Location of the Goulbourn Township Historical Society)
also St. Thomas the Apostle Anglican Church, Stittsville, Ontario

November 24, 2005:    

The hamlet of Stanley Corners (also known as Stanley's Corners) is located between
Richmond and Stittsville on Huntley Road at the corner of Flewellyn Road which is 
the Ninth Line of Goulbourn.

In the 1800's, St. Thomas Anglican Church and Cemetery was a busy place. Today,
the Church has moved to a new building on Carleton Cathcart Street in Stittsville.
Hello to my former neighbours in that area!

The old church (oops, see below) building is now used by the Goulbourn Township 
Historical Society which houses many family histories and records of the original 
1818 military settlement in Richmond. See posting below from Jim Kirkpatrick dated 
November 27, 2005.
