Blair Village The Bowman and Bechtel families are credited with starting the development of the village of Blair. Joseph Bowman built the first dam in the village, located on Bowman Creek, and erected the area’s first sawmill, the first industrial enterprise in the village. Henry Bechtel built the Durham Flour Mill in the early 1830s. Blair Village became part of Preston in 1969 and became part of Cambridge in 1973. Hespeler This area was originally part of the land granted to the Six Nations Indians by the British Crown in 1784. The Indians led by Joseph Brant sold part of their block of land measuring 90,000 acres to Richard Beasley and his partners. A group of Pennsylvania Mennonites agreed to buy some of the land and began arriving in the Hespeler area in 1809. The most important of the area’s early settlers was Jacob Hespeler, the man who gave the settlement its permanent name. Jacob Hespeler was born in Germany, educated in France and emigrated to Canada with eight of his brothers and sisters. In about 1835 he moved to the German community of Preston where he opened a store. He looked for land in order to build a grist mill and found a suitable site on the Speed River in the settlement of New Hope. He also built a sawmill, a cooperage, a gas house, a distillery and a stone woollen mill. The name of the village was changed to Hespeler in 1859 with the arrival of the Great Western Railway.

From the Back Cover:

Barbara Raue, a wife, mother and grandmother, is an avid reader and writer. She has researched and compiled several family histories.  In 2010, Barbara published her book "Coins of Gold," which celebrates the courageous life of her mother, May Todd.  Barbara's second book is a historical fiction "Arrows, Indians and Love" which takes place in Boonesborough, Kentucky during the time of Daniel Boone.  Barbara has published her third book, "The Life and Times of Barbara" and has completed nine volumes in that series, namely, Inventions, Entertainment, East Coast Trips, Olympics, Wonders of the World, Caribbean Cruises, Animals, Storms and Other Major Disasters in My Lifetime, and Wars, Terrorist Attacks and Major Disasters of the 20th and 21st centuries.  In 2013, Barbara published "The Cromwell Family Book".
 
Barbara is pursuing her interest in photography and architecture with a desire to Save Our History One Photo at a Time by preserving a record through photos of old buildings from the 1800s and 1900s with their unique architecture.  The centre gable Gothic cottage is the most popular house style in Ontario in the 19th century with variations in brick, stone and wood.  In many towns, there is the desire to preserve some of our architectural heritage.  The City of Cambridge is comprised of four former towns.  Cambridge Part 3, Hespeler and Blair Village are the subjects of Book 41 in the Cruising Ontario series, with many pictures labeled according to their style and/or special features.  An appendix describes the different architectural styles and terms found in the buildings in the town.
