Wellington County Historical Society

2016 Writing Contest

This year’s topic is:
HOW I CAME TO LIVE IN WELLINGTON COUNTY

Did your heritage family “come over on the boat” in the 16, 17, or 1800s? Were they some of the original pioneers who carved out a life in Wellington County? Was your family part of the Dutch immigration after the Second World War? Is your background of the Mennonite faith – or any other religion that makes Wellington County a unique mix of traditions? Did you relocate to Wellington in modern times when you or a parent changed or transferred with a job or profession? Tell us your story.
