Heritage Week Open House

February 24, 2018 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Saturday, February 24, 2018 from 2 to 4 p.m.

From February 20-26, we will be celebrating Ontario’s heritage, providing a wonderful opportunity for individuals and communities to reflect on their contributions to the province and how they might shape the future.

Join the celebrations at the Richmond Hill Heritage Centre on February 24. Meet local masons, enjoy some Victorian refreshments, participate in crafts for the kids, and be among the first to see the following informative new exhibits:

Freemasonry – A History Hidden in Plain Sight

This exhibit informs the public, arouses curiosity and promotes learning about freemasonry’s heritage and cultural identities. Freemasonry contributes to communities in a number of ways through the unspoken and invisible act of helping those in need. On loan from the Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre.

Queen Victoria’s Secrets

The time of Queen Victoria’s reign was a time of considerable change, including women’s fashions. As the dress changed shape, the undergarments also changed to give a woman the desired and fashionable silhouette. This exhibit will look at the various stages of a woman’s dress.
