Pioneer Memorial Wall

The most populous city in Canada and the provincial capital of Ontario. The city is the anchor of the Golden Horseshoe region, which wraps around Lake Ontario from Toronto to Niagara Falls.

The Memorial to the Lonely Graves is important to the heritage of Marble Bar because of its intrinsic, historic and social values. In this one memorial, the Marble Bar community is left with a permanent reminder of the pioneer fortitude that led to the settlement of the district.

The Memorial to the Lonely Graves is located in the main street of Marble Bar in an open park area between the Shire offices and the General Store. The two brick walls that make up the Memorial stand at 120° to one another, with plaques recording the name and date of every person whose grave has been discovered.

This Memorial is a result of passionate and extensive research by Len Lever of Marble Bar. Over the years Len Lever worked on the maintenance of the town water supply, serviced the power house and drove earthmoving equipment for road building. This lonely graves memorial is for people who passed away outside the township of Marble Bar
