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.”
