The Turnbulls - Hometown Hero
Right from the start, William Turnbull was a progressive farmer focusing on livestock production but he played a very active role in helping build the fledgling settlement. In time, his son Jared took over the farm and continued to be active in organizations that brought innovations to the area.
Onoway Museum is saluting the Turnbulls, William and his son Jared, as Hometown Heroes. With the strong support of their spouses Mary and Elizabeth who were also very strongly involved in church, womens and community organizations, the Turnbull family has made many contributions to life in the Onoway area.
