Chelsea Trails is once again partnering with the Gatineau Valley Historical Society on a third set of interpretive panels along the railway corridor featuring scenes from Chelsea’s past. The previous two years have seen the installation of a series of historical panels along the railway in the Kirk’s Ferry/Larrimac and Cascades sectors. This year, new panels will highlight the Mill Road area, including the site of the former Chelsea train station, the original English Chelsea Elementary School building and the former section foreman’s house.

Featured here, former Chelsea Elementary students, RJ Hughes and Harold Reid located the sites, while Chelsea Trails Alain Piché marked the placing of the posts for the panels and GVHS rep Louise Schwartz looked on. Photo credit: Heidi von Graevenitz.
