Our Town: Brantford
Saturday, December 12th, 2009, at 6:30pm on WNED-TV
“There’s a lot more to explore. I wanted to … give people a little taste and whet their appetite.” ― David Simpson (Topic: historic sites)
“It’s a nice town … it’s very real. We’re not fancy or anything, but we have a lot going for us.”
― Peter Muir (Topic: Brant Theatre’s production of Dracula at the Bell Homestead)
Located on the Grand River in Southern Ontario, The Telephone City has been home to Mohawk settlers; inventor Alexander Graham Bell; and hockey great Wayne Gretzky.
In October 2009, 32 current residents captured some of Brantford’s foremost “points of pride” for OUR TOWN: Brantford, WNED’s 14th community “video scrapbook” production.
As these volunteer videographers show through their film footage, Brantford has carefully preserved both its storied past and its natural beauty. In this city of about 90,000 people, bald eagles – as well as the historic downtown core – are making a comeback.
Discover what makes Brantford a special place to live or visit ― from its coveted riverfront, to a distinctive college campus occupying former industrial spaces, to a restored Vaudeville theatre, and much more!
Our Town: Brantford will premiere Saturday, December 12th at 6:30pm.
