About Sara

My name is Sara Lauzon, or, as Cornwall citizens and media have affectionately coined me, "Cornwall's Little Historian." I am 28 years old, and I was born and raised in Cornwall, Ontario. I am a graduate of St. Lawrence College (General Arts and Science Diploma) and the University of Ottawa, where I received my BA in History. I am currently enrolled in online studies through St. Lawrence College. I am completing a Certificate in Records and Information Management.

I have been obsessed with Cornwall’s history since the age of sixteen. I have spent the last eleven years researching, writing, and sharing Cornwall’s rich history through newspaper articles, walking tours, lectures, and social media. I proudly write a history column that is published bi-weekly in The Seaway News.
