The Mulgrave & Derry Historical Society compiled a list of men and women who originally came from Mulgrave-et-Derry and have served or are currently serving in the Canadian Armed Forces. It is a living document and additional information is welcomed.
Thank you to all who have contributed towards this project.
This initiative aims at depicting historical place names used in the past. The MULGRAVE signs have been installed! Look for those brown landmarks on your way through the municipality. We will be identifying suitable locations in the DERRY sector for future signs. Suggestions are welcomed.
Since 2000, many photo boards have been laminated and hung at St. Matthew's parsonage, showing founding families and their descendants. If you have old photographs, please consider donating these or allowing us to make copies for long term retention.
Mulgrave-et-Derry Coat of Arms
In late 2022, a small team from the Historical Society concluded a lengthy project to design an official Coat of Arms, a Flag and Badge for the Municipality. Work was led by the Canadian Heraldic authorities. The results will be evident locally in the municipality in the coming years.
A new initiative that will evolve speaking with local citizens to capture stories of days gone by. If you have a suggestion of someone to approach, or if some of your family members would like to share their memories of the past for posterity, please contact us.
In 2003, some essential structural repairs were made and a ramp was built for the historic St. Matthew's parsonage, now 120 years old. The building was used as the parson's family residence until 1949, and since 2000, it serves to house local artifacts and photo collections as the Historical Society 'museum'.
