The Official Donnelly Home Page

This award-winning website was created in 1997 for anyone interested in the Donnellys, Canada's notorious family,
that was murdered by a vigilante committee near Lucan, Ontario, on February 4th, 1880.
2020 marks the 139th anniversary of the Biddulph Tragedy, as it came to be known.

This site has been online for 23 years, and it is still going strong, attracting close to a million visitors to date.
We wish to thank everyone for their continued support of this web site.

donnellys.com Update:

The donnellys.com website is currently under re-construction. 
The old website is outdated, so we are hoping to give it a NEW look. 
But it's taking a little longer than we anticipated, as there is much 
to be done here. In the meantime, we appreciate your patience as 
the site is updated, and hope that you come back soon!
Thanks so much!  

Donnelly Homestead Update:

After 30 years, the Donnelly Homestead Site Tour is closing. 
Rob Salts, owner of the homestead, will no longer be giving tours 
of the famous historic attraction. The homestead closed its doors
for the last time on October 31st, 2018. 

I’d like to take a minute to thank Rob Salts for his time and 
dedication in telling the story of the Black Donnellys, 
and for the thousands of tours he has given over the years. 
He has devoted 30 years of his life to keeping an important 
part of Canadian history alive, and we all appreciate it so much.

It was also a great pleasure designing and maintaining Rob Salt's 
website, 'The Donnelly Homestead Site Tour' for many years. 

Thanks, Rob!
Wishing you all the best in your future endeavours.

Kind regards... Webmaster – donnellys.com
