The Granite Man of Gilmour is proudly sponsored by the Community Archives Of Belleville and Hastings County. The Community Archives collects and shares information about the history of Belleville and Hastings County region through the records of its people, businesses and local governments.

The story of 200 years of Marmora History and the ironworks is the story of an industrial dream set in the wilds of a sparsely populated colony. From the start it should have been written off as an impossible dream in that it wasn't, lies its romance .. time and time again the original ironmaster and his successors would beat their heads against bureaucracy, their bodies against the wilderness, and their fortunes against reality... by their success and more often their failures is written a story largely forgotten.
