Sarah King Head
A heritage professional and historian, the focus of my research over the past 15 years has been the built heritage of the Niagara region, which led to the publication in 2017 of the award-winning Where Beavers Built Their Dams: The Evolution of a Unique Cultural Heritage Landscape in Thorold, Ontario. One of my current research focuses is Thorold engineer, contractor and entrepreneur John Brown (1809–76).
