Bruce Township Laneways and Landmarks, compiled by the Township of Bruce Historical Society, was launched on June 12, 2009 at the annual dinner meeting in the community centre in Underwood. The content of the 432 page book is basically new material, documenting ownership of each farmstead from earliest records to October 2006 and including over 500 pictures and narratives for each property where available.

This book has been a "work in progress" for some years through co-operation of the Bruce County Museum and Cultural Centre, the Walkerton Land Registry Office and the Bruce County Historical Society. Countless volunteers and the society's directors have laboured intensively in utilizing local resources to make this publication a reality. The Township of Bruce Historical Society directors sincerely appreciate the efforts of all in its production. The book is available at $50 each or five for $200 at the Underwood office (8:30 to 11).  For more details contact Herb Henkenhaf at 519-368-7458 or

We appreciate the generous grant from the Trillium Foundation for this book.
