Paying homage to Bruce County’s Pioneers The Last Frontier shares the stories from the 1850s to the 1900s, explore the history of furniture making and learn a new skill from this era.

This exhibit offers programming counters that provide space for community groups to demonstrate their skills and extend opportunities to teach visitors about a simpler time. At one counter local programming partners such as the Wood Turners demonstrate, teach and showcase their work while depicting carpenters, blacksmiths and coopers. Meanwhile, at the second counter local Historical Societies and Women’s Institutes demonstrate, teach and showcase historical domestic activities with topics such as dairy, recipes, weaving, quilting, Fall Fairs and Mineral Water Treatments.

In addition, this exhibit showcases early trades of Bruce County display cases featuring artefacts with interactive screens, and monitors where viewers can experience activities of early pioneer life to learn more about our past.
