“Who was Colonel Samuel Smith?”

Who was Colonel Samuel Smith?

Who was Colonel Samuel Smith? We see his name in our neighbourhood park and plaques – but who WAS Colonel Samuel Smith? The Lakeshore Grounds Interpretive Centre team investigates our local history on the site of Smith’s former homestead and explores the connections to the history of the cottage industry that shaped Long Branch.

Through arts, culture, and storytelling, the Lakeshore Grounds Interpretive Centre aims to interpret the natural and built heritage of the Lakeshore Grounds and to engage the surrounding community through exhibitions and cultural programming. We focus primarily on themes of education, mental health, indigenous history, environmental sustainability, and civic engagement.
