Memories of Smithville-1787 to 1950

The history book that helps inform this podcast was completed and first published in 2009. In 2014 the book had its third printing. It was written by myself and published by Doug Nicol. Copies can be still be purchased at the Chamber of Commerce location in the Train Station, at Carruthers' Printing on College Street and by contacting me, Ivan Carruthers, directly.

Do you have a question for topics for future episodes?

Some of the topics for the first few episodes came from conversations I had with friends and acquaintances who I bumped into and who asked me if I remembered something about a certain part of Smithville or if I remembered a particular person. If you have a question about Smithville or some of the families from the area please send me an email. If I know something about the topic or can find out for you, I may include it in a future podcast!

    Surveying the Town, Letter from a Listener and a Shout Out to Brad Smith.

    Yup, it's been awhile but what a wonderful summer it has been. In this new episode Ivan provides the history of how West Lincoln was first surveyed. In addition he is looking for some help finding family history for Brad Smith. Brad, a local author, contacted Dad and asked if he had any information on his family tree. Have a listen and maybe you can help Brad. The episode ends with a letter from Rick Frith about his childhood in Smithville and his memories of his dad and life on the TH&B railway. We hope you enjoy this walk down memory lane.

    Here's a link for you to have a look at Brad's fantastic reads:
