Description

Algonquin College Speaker Series Presents…

Join us on Thursday, June 14, 2018, at 6:30 p.m. @ the Waterfront Campus to learn how 100 years ago much of Pembroke’s downtown was destroyed by a raging fire. The blaze broke out in the early evening of June 18, 1918, starting at the Laundriault’s Livery Barns on Prince Street and sweeping through the town. It took several hours for firefighters to get the inferno under control, but by that time a pile of rubble was all that remained for several blocks of the downtown. Local historian Bruce Pappin will lead an informative speaker series presentation to mark the anniversary of Pembroke’s Great Fire of 1918 with a two-part session that includes a walk through the downtown, highlighting how the fire progressed and what buildings were destroyed. The presentation will also explore the aftermath of the fire, including the inquest that was held to determine the cause.
