The London & Middlesex branch is pleased to invite you to join us on Saturday, October 5, 2024, at 10 am for our monthly hybrid event, with speaker and avid gardener, Noelle Tangredi, who will be joining us in person. 

A bit about our Speaker:

Born and raised in London, Ontario, Noelle Tangredi has always had a deep passion for local history. Educated in the historic Old North area, Noelle was fortunate to purchase a home there in 2000, where an interest in uncovering the past flourished. Noelle volunteers with ACO London’s Historical House Sign program and serves as the caretaker and curator of the St. Joseph’s Hospital and School of Nursing Artifact Collection. 

Synopsis:

Over the past 24 years, my garden has yielded a steady stream of coal ashes and broken china, hinting at the rich history of my 126-year-old heritage home. However, the summer of 2023 marked a turning point when I decided to dig deeper, and the garden revealed a trove of fascinating artifacts. In this talk, I will share the journey of my purposeful excavation, showcasing the remarkable items I discovered and delving into the stories of the former inhabitants who buried them.
