The Mulgrave Heritage Centre will be celebrating Heritage Day by recognizing Annie Meagher one of the eldest living decedents of John Peeples.

The Peeples family immigrated from Northern Ireland and John Peeples was granted 500 acres of land in 1785 that would later contribute to the development of The Town of Mulgrave.

There are still several members of the Peeples family living in the area today. The family was involved in several areas of the community such as liquor sales and postal services.

Meagher is over 100 years old and has a great memory of the historic events that helped to shape the community.

The centre would also like to recognize the contribution of her brother the late Earl Peeples a former member of the heritage centre. He played a significant role in the design and construction of the railway model on display at the museum.

She will be recognized at a special event held by the heritage centre on February 20th at 2PM
