Welcome to our 48th installment of “Ask a Historian”.

Join Historian Matthew Wilkinson for our next episode of “Ask A Historian” today at 6:00 p.m. on our YouTube channel.

This week Matthew answers questions about some of the infamous fires that blazed through historic Erindale, and looks at the history of how Erindale was named.

#ApartTogether we continue to research, record, and celebrate the history of our fascinating city.

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.
