Trent Valley Archives presents West Side Story on Sunday afternoon at 4 p.m. This will be the last chance to take in this historical walking tour that carries you through the old "West End" of Peterborough, including Homewood Avenue, Weller Avenue, and Murray Street, to learn about the relationships between these areas that once were.
The tour is approximately one hour and you can meet your guide at the corner of Monaghan and Weller. Parking available at Queen Mary Public School.
During the month of August, Trent Valley Archives will continue with their ever popular Eerie Ashburnham Ghost Walks that begin at 9 p.m. on Friday nights from the corner of Hunter Street and Driscoll Terrace.

Despite the rain, it wasn't enough to keep the ghosts away at the 160th Anniversary of Little Lake Cemetery on the weekend. The well attended celebration, put on by the Trent Valley Archives and the Little Lake Cemetery Company, had actors portraying famous citizens at their own grave sites. Each "ghost" had a story to share of the life and times of those buried at the various sites.
At the chapel, there was also a ceremony to commemorate the occasion with speeches from the likes of Mayor Paul Ayotte (playing Peterborough's first Mayor, Thomas Benson).
