The Middleville and District Museum has several events planned for the fall months.
Be sure to mark your calendars and join us.
British Home Child Day
The history of British Home Children is not well known by most people in Canada. In the mid 1800's to the early 1900's, 100 000 British Children were brought to Canada and sent to farms and homes mainly in rural areas. The stories of these children have not often been told.
The Museum has been researching and compiling information on British Home Children who were raised locally. An exhibit celebrating the lives of these resilient individuals will be on display in September.
Please join us on Saturday, September 24th, 2022 (noon - 4 pm) to celebrate the lives of the local Home Children. David Murdoch will be on hand to answer questions. Visitors are encouraged to share names and stories they have of Home Children they knew. The information collected through this project will be preserved for future reference in the Museum.
Apple Cider Day
The Museum's old cider press will be pressed into action once again this fall. This popular family fun activity is returning to the Museum in October.
Families are invited to participate in this outdoor event on Saturday, October 8th, 2022 on the Museum grounds, noon - 4pm.
Come and join in the fun as we turn rosy apples into sweet cider. You can bring along some apples if you wish, but we'll have plenty on hand to try your hand at pressing cider. If you would like to take a sample of cider home with you, be sure to bring along your own container.
Christmas Past at the Museum
A Family Fun Event is happening just in time for the Christmas Card family photo! The Middleville and District Museum will be decorating its lovely, old schoolhouse door for the Christmas season. An event is planned for the last weekend of November.
Families can enjoy hot apple cider, gingerbread cookie decorating and , of course, posing for a great family photograph just in time for sending Christmas cards whether traditional or online.
Plan to visit us to see the decorations and join in the fun as we get ready for Christmas.
We hope you will be able to join us for some or all our events this fall. We look forward to your visit!
