Join Historian Matthew Wilkinson for our next episode of “Ask A Historian” on September 9, 2021 at 4:00 p.m. on our YouTube channel.
This week, Historian Matthew Wilkinson answers questions from the community on old buildings in Cooksville, movie theatres from the 1970s, and the introduction and impacts of disease from settlers on Indigenous communities.
We invite you to send in your questions about historic people, places, and events in Mississauga to [email protected] and we may feature your question on an upcoming episode.
#ApartTogether we continue to explore the heritage of Mississauga.
You are invited to email us questions you have about Mississauga and we encourage you to send a short (less than 1 minute) MP4 video of your question, which we may feature in one of our “Ask a Historian” videos.
Any questions not featured in our videos will receive a written response from Matthew.
We would also love to feature questions from young Mississauga residents who are curious about their city and will feature a dedicated video to these inquisitive kids.
Send your questions to us at: [email protected]
