Every year from May to October, communities across the province open doors to hundreds of historical buildings, museums, private homes, and other interesting venues. Many of the participating sites offer special activities, such as tours, exhibitions and demonstrations – all free of charge!
St. Thomas’ Doors Open is coming up Saturday October 15th from 10am-4pm and will feature some unique sites and activities.
This year, Doors Open St. Thomas will feature heritage landmarks. From the Old St. Thomas Church built in 1822 to the future Elevated Park (Michigan Central Railway Bridge), you will get a behind-the-scenes glimpse into St. Thomas' amazing built heritage and the sites celebrating that heritage.
“Since it began, Doors Open Ontario has allowed millions of people to glimpse into some of our province’s most fascinating cultural sites. Not only does the program boost local economies, but it also raises awareness of and interest in heritage conservation. I encourage Ontarians and visitors to get out and discover the unique story and experience waiting behind every door.”
