Doors are open this weekend
CORNWALL and UNITED COUNTIES of SD&G, Ontario - Both the City of Cornwall and the United Counties of SD&G are holding Doors Open events this weekend.
From April to October, Doors Open events take place across the Province of Ontario and give residents and tourists alike the opportunity to see the province’s heritage treasures.
There are 11 sites in Cornwall and 12 in SD&G.
“Cornwall is one of Ontario’s oldest communities and we have a great history to share and celebrate,” said Kevin Lajoie, Tourism Coordinator with Cornwall Tourism. “Doors Open gives residents and visitors a chance to discover some of our landmark buildings and the interesting stories behind them.”
A few of the locations participating in Doors Open in Cornwall include the old Cornwall General Hospital, Trinity Anglican Church and the Port Theatre, while in SD&G participants can go and see the inside of the Martintown Grist Mill, Springfield Farm and the Glengarry Pioneer Museum.
Those looking to go to Springfield Farms and are approaching from the eastbound direction on Cty. Rd. 25 will have a slight fiveminute detour that they will have to take, but visitors should not let that throw them. Springfield Farms is a beautiful property in the Apple Hill area that includes a yurt that serves as an Airbnb.
“Doors Open is more than people going around and seeing old buildings,” said SD&G Tourism Coordinator Nick Seguin. “It is a cultural exchange and people get the chance to see the hard work our community members are doing.”
