The following links provide additional information about Cobalt and the area. Explore virtually and we are sure you will be enthralled and suitably entertained.
Virtual Museum of Canada
The Cobalt Mining Museum undertook a project in 2010 to develop an interactive website called the Cobalt Adventure. A four characters play that provides the individual with some insight into the early days of Cobalt from any one of those four points of view.
Cobalt Mining Legacy
This website was prepared by an individual who worked as a geologist in the Cobalt area. The historical information is quite interesting and he also does provide some information regarding past mining practices that have left their scars on mining communities.
Spring Pulse Poetry Festival
Local residents added life into what was once the Henry Drummond Poetry Contest which was begun in 1970. It is now a full fledged Poetry Festival and welcomes participants from around the province. Individuals are invited to contribute their poems and enter them into the annual competition.
Our own Poet Laureate, Ann Margetson, was featured on CBC National News and is a local treasure.
Cobalt Historical Society
The Cobalt Historical Society is a volunteer non-profit corporation that was established in 1999. We are a member of the joint-venture partnership with the Town of Cobalt and Coleman Township and our mission is to preserve and promote the mining heritage of the area.
The Society was created to fulfill the Town of Cobalt’s initiative to build the Heritage Silver Trail, a self-guided tour that includes former mining sites in Cobalt and Coleman. On the Town’s behalf, we built the trail and since then we continue to develop and maintain the sites with aid from the two municipalities, our members, and volunteers.
Temiskaming Art Gallery
The Temiskaming Area is rich in art and artistic talent. Besides the art work displayed at the Cobalt Mining Museum, the Cobalt Public Library and the Bunker, much is available at the Temiskaming Art Gallery.
Temiskaming Grave Markers
This website was set up through a genealogy website and allows you to search out grave markers throughout the area. Both the Silverland and St.Thérèse Cemeteries are here. This site can lead you back to any number of other resting places that might be of interest to you.
This link was prepared by an individual who travelled throughout Northern Ontario and documented his exploits. It is very enjoyable and allows you to visit communities along highways 17 and 11.
