The Public School in Port Dalhousie was opened in 1877. In 1955 the school was renamed McArthur Public School. The school celebrated its centennial in 1977 and closed in 1979. It became an antiques market and then in 1998 was demolished. Condos were later built on its site.
The Tweedsmuir Village Histories began with encouragement by Lady Tweedsmuir, wife of Lord Tweedsmuir, the Governor General of Canada. She believed that the history of Canada should be preserved and encouraged local Women's Institutes to keep history books. After the death of Lord Tweedsmuir, the scrapbooks were named after him resulting in the Tweedsmuir Village History Books.
This scrapbook was created by the Port Dalhousie Women's Institute.
