Take a walk along the Path of the Polish Kashub Pioneers where
visitors are introduced to the first Polish Kashub settlers through commemorative heritage stones.
These fieldstones from original homesteads are engraved with pertinent genealogical and land settlement details. It is hoped that eventually there will be a heritage stone for each original Polish Kashub immigrant family. In 2006, the first stone from the Polish Hills of Otter Lake, Quebec [Kluke Family] and the first stone from a Renfrew farm family [Cobus/Kobus] were unveiled. As of January 2009, there were 41 commemorative stones in Wilno Heritage Park, and a number of new stones are to be added later in the season.
For those who would like to place a family stone at the Park to honour their family's first Polish Kashub ancestors, please contact the museum
curator at firstname.lastname@example.org or David Shulist, President of the Wilno Heritage Society, at email@example.com For photographs of the heritage stones at Wilno Heritage Park, CLICK HERE
