Canada's City of Pembroke celebrates its 180th anniversary  with a 12 x 88-foot  mural  featuring a reproduction of the city's first map created by surveyor John McNaughton in 1836 .

Mural celebrates early pioneers of the area

The year 2008 marks the 180th anniversary of the City of Pembroke and surrounding region that was originally called Pembroke Township.
It has been four years since Pembroke Heritage Murals has worked in earnest to develop a mural that would illustrate the lives of these first settlers 180 years ago and fit very well with the archives and grounds of the Champlain Trail Museum and Pioneer Village.
The volunteer committee of Heritage Murals, in co-operation with the volunteers and staff at the museum, have sifted through numerous records and, over time, distilled the information to the point where the group had developed the subject matter for a new mural.
The Heritage Murals Committee is very pleased that original records at the Land Registry Office were still available to read from this time period of 30 years.
