Description
[font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Acton's Beardmore Tannery, which operated until 1986, was billed as the largest tanning operation in the British Empire in 1900, and employed hundreds of workers. Despite three major fires in the twentieth century, Beardmore remained the largest tannery in Canada into the 1970s. Perhaps you remember the Olde Hide House [/font][font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]ads: “It's worth the drive to Acton?” While the Beardmore factory is long demolished, it is still celebrated as an integral part of the town history. [/font][font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]It was the focal point of Halton Region Museum's heritage day in 2009, and its gates are still a stop on the Acton Nature Trail along Black Creek.[/font]
[font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]
[/font]
[font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]The tannery was demolished on August 20, 1998.[/font]
