The old battles of Young Road

YoungRdClosedMy latest article in the Lambton Local has been published – this month on the great debate over the route of the main road to town in the 1870’s. Oh boy, what a saga of local rivalries and government equivocation to match the great rail line truncation debate we’ve experienced lately.

Even after Young Rd lost out to being the main road to town, it had a rather troubled story and quite a few battles fought over it.  You can read all about it in the details page for my article, and see how we came to the situation today where Young Rd is in two separate sections – one in Lambton, and the other in Broadmeadow.
