Omemee

Omemee is a community within the city of Kawartha Lakes, Ontario, Canada, formerly known as Victoria County. Omemee is one of the major communities in the Kawartha Lakes, as the proclaimed "city" is vastly rural and has but one major population centre. Omemee was the early childhood home of musician Neil Young before he moved to Winnipeg and his father, sports writer, Scott Young.

The community has a population of 1,319 as of the 2001 Census. It is located between the City of Peterborough and the Town of Lindsay. Lindsay is the largest population centre in the city of Kawartha Lakes, and serves as the administrative centre as it did with Victoria County.History The community that grew up around William Cottingham's mills on the Pigeon River was first called Williamstown and then Metcalfe. In 1857 the community was renamed Omemee, a Mississauga word meaning pigeon.

Omemee was also the childhood home of Flora McRae Eaton, Sir John Craig Eaton's wife, the president and heir of the Eaton department store in Canada.

It was in addition the birthplace of Charles Norris Cochrane.

Omemee has two Public Schools, both named after people who lived in the town, and are now well known. Lady Eaton Elementary (Kindergarten to Grade 4), and Scott Young (Grades 5 to 8). Scott Young Public School was named after Scott Young, an author of many books, and father of musician Neil Young.

The now ghost town of Omemee, North Dakota was named after the Ontario Omemee, as the former's first post master hailed from the latter. The Ontario town was named for the Omemee tribe, which once hunted in the area.

Kitchens tend to be the focal point of our modern day home and as such home owners have changed the kitchens design to suit. In the past kitchens were a place where the cooking was done and the food was brought to a separate dining room where the guest would be served.

These are some of the other questions I asked myself about each belonging I am determining whether to keep, discard or donate: When I see it, does it lift my spirits? Or does it carry memories of a time best forgotten? Does it have a practical use, today? Or maybe, it was once useful and I think perhaps someday it may be useful again? Am I keeping it for me, or out of a sense of duty to someone ... Read More...
