Historical Plaque Program

Although the Township of Russell's growth allows us to look to the future, what remains fundamental to our identity is our history. Through formally recognising the buildings, properties, and events historically significant to the Township of Russell, the Historical Plaque Program is an investment to honour and preserve the stories that have shaped our community.

The goal of this program is to tell the story of our Township to residents and tourists alike, and to foster an interest and understanding of our community’s roots. Each plaque has a historical photo and bilingual text describing the site’s historical significance to visitors. To recount complete stories, there is further information and older photos available for each plaque below. 

We would like to recognize our partnership with the Russell and District Historical Society for their contributions towards the Historical Plaque Program.
