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!

    Waterways, Wellandport and Middleport

    It's been awhile but Ivan is back with a new episode,(the delay was totally Greg's fault!). This one covers some of the history of how the waterways contributed to the settlement of some of the areas south of Smithville. You will hear a lot of information about a village you probably know, Wellandport, and a little bit about a village that many of you drive through but may not know of it's history--Middleport. We hope you enjoy!
