A Whispered History: The People of Buchanan Township is a virtual oral history exhibit created by Deep River historian Elizabeth Bond and web curator Fayiaz Chunara, in partnership with The School House Museum and Bright Ideas Software.

The impetus for this project was the broad bank of stories that Gerald shared with Elizabeth while they collaborated on an archaeological survey of the former Buchanan Township initiated by Atomic Energy of Canada Limited at Chalk River during the summers of 2006 and 2007. This research is primarily based on Gerald’s accounts of the community where he spent his boyhood years.

A Whispered History: The People of Buchanan Township hopes to rekindle an awareness of Buchanan’s rich heritage in order to ensure that the stories of Buchanan’s longsuffering residents are captured forever.
