The Whitestone Historical Society was formed to foster the recognition of the unique heritage, and to encourage its preservation, of the Municipality of Whitestone and the surrounding area.
The Society publishes an annual calendar featuring historical photos and descriptions of our area. Some calendars from previous years are still available as collector's items. The 2018 calendar feature old barns, some of which are still in use today. Cost is $7.00, and is available for purchase at Duck Rock General Store, Bearly Used Book Store, Whitestone-Hagerman Memorial Public Library, and at the Whitestone Municipal Office.
The Historical Society is in the process of sharing the information and pictures that it has collected since forming in 1999 by way of books about the area.
The first book printed in 2016 is "Ahmic Harbour - The Story Of Crosswell's Landing" and is available for $30.
Two books printed in 2017, are "Dunchurch, The Story Of Newcombe" are also available for $30 each.
"Butler's Creek To The Hardscrabble Including Maple Island And Glenila" is available for $30.
More books are planned, each one a report of the history of the area that it represents. The books are available at Duck Rock General Store, and Bearly Used Book Store.
The Historical Society provides a local historical display as part of the Dunchurch Agricultural Society's annual Fall Fair. Both the calendar and the books are available at the display.
