Presented in partnership with the Peel Heritage Complex, Heritage Mississauga is delighted to host the War of 1812 travelling exhibit from the Archives of Ontario from January 24th until February 24th, 2012. The exhibit will be augmented with images and information connecting historic Mississauga to the War.

 

The Archives of Ontario’s War of 1812 travelling exhibit sheds light on formative events in the history of Ontario. The War of 1812 had long-term effects on the economic, social and political life of the province. This exhibit is a history resource that showcases some of the personalities and locations that played a role in the war, and explores the events of that conflict using the correspondence and diaries of those who lived it. Their words are illustrated with artwork, maps and photographs from the holdings of the Archives, many being made widely available for the first time. We invite you to explore this exhibit and learn about the War of 1812 in Upper Canada. In addition, the exhibit will feature information and images connecting the militia veterans from historic Mississauga (Toronto Township). This free exhibit is open from Tuesday to Friday, 9am-5pm, and 8pm on most Tuesdays.

 

For more information, please contact Heritage Mississauga at 905-828-8411 ext.29.

There was also a category at the end of the survey for selecting a favourite overall Doors Open Ontario site.

After 3,142 individual votes, the results are now in. Please see the attached document for an overview of all nominees and all winners.

Meadowvale Miniature Village – situated in a private garden in Meadowvale – has been declared the people’s choice winner for favourite overall Doors Open Ontario site, right here in Mississauga!

Terry Wilson and his mother Rosemary have dedicated many years to the creation of this unique site. This site is well known to many both within and outside our city. Their delightful recreation of the local mill community has been featured in large editorials in The Toronto Star and House and Garden Magazine over the years. Terry’s recent addition for 2011, was a recreation of the Meadowvale train station on the old Credit Valley Railway line in the year 1900, including the actual sounds of the incoming steam engines. The sound is a great feature for family visits, bringing folks immediately back in time – attached is an image of Terry in railway uniform. Over the years for Doors Open Mississauga, Terry and Rosemary, together with a wonderful team of volunteers, welcomes visitors in uniform and conducts tours recalling Meadowvale’s unique history.

As the winning site, Meadowvale Miniature Village will receive a certificate from the Ontario Heritage Trust in the upcoming weeks.

Congratulations Terry!
