Communications has evolved over the years and this event allows residents and visitors to witness the history of its development. From reading and writing in a one-room schoolhouse, to sending telegrams over the wire, to looking at the printed word that travelled over rail and water, our forebears laid a path for communication that we still use today.
The event is free and open to all. For more information, visit their website or contact the Doors Open Ontario Committee at 705-324-3404.
