Scandals and Scoundrels Pub Crawl

presented by Trent Valley Archives


Trent Valley Archives hosts its first public “Scandals and Scoundrels Pub Crawl“ of 2017 on Friday, March 24th from 7-10 PM. Further tours will happen later in the year but this is a special one.

This is the last time the Pub Crawl can stop to hear owner John Punter talk about the amazing history of his establishment which will close later in April. Originally known as the St. Maurice Saloon when it opened in 1865, the tavern went through nine name changes in its 152-year history. You will also hear the incredible story of how John, a producer of several 1970s super groups, left his native England and found his way to Peterborough and the Pig’s Ear.

Along with the “Piggy” you will learn about the long gone Phelan House, the Purple Rooster, the White House and the Grand Hotel. These establishments are rife with stories of murder, robberies, riots, police shootouts, ghosts and mysterious . We will visit the Red Dog and to our new addition, Dr. J’s, formerly known as the Montreal House. There will even be time to grab a cold one!

Join the tour guides at the city bus stop just east of the Simcoe St. city bus station at 7 PM sharp on Friday, March 24th. The tour will be no longer than three hours. Groups are limited to 20 persons; the cost is $22 which does not include the price of your beverage.
