PA Day Adventures

Our first PA Day Adventure of the year took place September 29, and it was a blast -- literally! Our adventurers did science experiments and explored chemistry through Wacky Science.

The next PA Day Adventure takes place October 27! In Hallow's Eve Detectives, kids will develop and use their detective skills to follow clues and solve the Halloween mystery!

Moreston in the Fall

Moreston Heritage Village had its last day of the season on Friday, September 29. Staying open throughout September gave us the opportunity to make the most of our beautiful fall weather and colours. It was a busy season in the village, with fifteen new volunteers and lots of events and activities. 

As always, Moreston will open for special events throughout the fall, winter, and spring, and we look forward to an even more exciting 2018 season! 

Collections Update

If you visited Grey Roots this summer, you would have seen the interior of the Large Artefact Display Building. Our 2017 collections summer student, Melissa Yeo, spent hours cleaning these large items, using steel wool on the metal components and lots of elbow grease! We are proud that these wagons, automobiles, and cutters are now in a well-lighted, clean, and stable environment where staff can monitor and properly care for the items.

We welcome Owen Sound District Secondary School student, Hannah Mustard as our Fall 2017 / Winter 2018 co-op student. Currently she is cataloging and photographing artefacts and will be helping to remove fragile artefacts from the Moreston buildings later in the season.
