Writing History: Local Stories by New Writers presents four histories researched and written by four new writers. These histories peer into the origins of landmarks in Mississauga and Cambridge, Ontario, and demonstrate the vibrant relevance of the past.

Discover the origins of Mississauga’s mega-mall Square One. Learn about the mysterious missing house on the University of Toronto Mississauga campus—and the one still standing. Encounter the strange history of the Preston Springs Hotel. And through the window of a tiny cottage called The Grange, see why heritage matters.
