We invite you listen to two podcasts about John S.J. Watson, founder of Rockingham.
Created by Barry Conway and presented by The Opeongo Readers’ Theatre, That Man from Rockingham explores conflicting accounts of Watson’s origins, his alleged connections to Rockingham Castle, and his arrival in the Valley — as well as his many contributions to developing the area.
Part two of the podcast continues the story of John Watson’s life in England, his two wives, and the important role his second wife, Mary Martin, played in the success of his Rockingham venture.
Click here to listen to part one of the podcast or search for The Opeongo Line Podcast on your podcast listening device.
If you enjoy visiting the little brown church on the hill, please consider making a donation towards its upkeep, either on our website (through Canada Helps), or by mail. Charitable receipts are issued for all donations.
We look forward to your future visits.
