Help us find the Roots of Eagle Place


The Canadian Industrial Heritage Centre is excited to announce a new heritage program focused on retaining the memories of Eagle Place and its industrial heritage. From the early 1800s to the present day, the history of “Eagle’s Nest Tract” is a fascinating one. Beginning in the early 1800’s factories were constructed for the Cockshutt Plow Company, Koehring Waterous and a variety of other industries. Thousands of their workers made Brantford one of the largest manufacturing centres in Canada.


Many of the families of workers in the factories still have valuable memories of these times and the work done in the industries of the area. We want to collect these and bring them alive.


Working in partnership with the Eagle Place Community Association, the Brantford and District Labour Council and Brant Theatre Workshops, we will be producing a series of activities and events to share those memories. Each of our organizations are currently located in Eagle Place. 


We are currently beginning our research and are reaching out to any people who have memories that they may wish to share with us.

If you have information about the stories (any history or artifacts) of Eagle Place, call Sharyl Hudson at 519-761-0781 or email shudsonmuir@gmail.com
