  • Notes 
    • MRS. JOHNSON

      Mrs. Johnson was the widow of a baker and storekeeper whose residence was located on the northwest corner of the intersection of Main and Ainslie St. in Galt. She is remembered as one of Galt's early librarians, caring for the books of the Galt Subscription and Circulating Library which was organized in 1836. Mrs. Johnson was the Library's second librarian taking over from George Lee a short time after the formation of the Library. The books were stored in a pine chest located on the upper storey. The Library merged with the Galt Mechanics Institute in 1853.
