Wednesday to Sunday
11:00am, 1:00pm, 3:00pm
Awaken your senses to some of the sights, sounds and smells of
daily life for the Gibsons, a 19th century Scottish settler
family. Delve into the deeper complexities and hidden
histories associated with David Gibson's work as a land surveyor
and agent in colonization as you explore his diaries, letters and
surveys. Join in lively discussions with staff as you explore
how the working of farm and household were inextricably tied to a
land reshaped by colonization. Consider the questions
many Canadians ponder today when they realize they share land once
wholly held in the stewardship of first nations peoples.
Proof of vaccination is not required for participation in
