History of the Joshua Bates Centre


Who Was Joshua Bates?

The Brockville Recorder and Times presents a short biography of Mr. Bates and his influence on Athens in their writeup of his mural, October 25, 2017.

The Heritage House Museum in Smiths Falls also provides some information about him (and shows his gravestone) in this Facebook post.
