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!

    The Boulter Family and Business History

    In this last episode before Christmas 2018, Ivan first pays tribute to Harry Smith from Belleville Ontario who passed away recently. Harry was podcasting into his 90's and gave Dad some of the motivation and inspiration to start this podcast. The rest of the episode is dedicated to the Boulter family of Smithville. The Boulter family was involved in the meat and grocery business in the Smithville area for many years and through many generations. We hope you enjoy this trip down memory lane.
