The County Canadiana Gallery

‌Macaulay Heritage Park

23 Church Street, Picton

With an estimated collection of more than 10,000 pieces, Macaulay Heritage Park presents a special gallery, highlighting artifacts that strongly represent Canadian identities, symbols, achievement and pride. The artifacts on display will mainly span the time from Canadian Confederation in 1867 to Canada's Centennial celebrations in 1967.  As part of this exhibition, a component entitled Then, Now...Oh Wow! will be presented in partnership with Sonrise Christian Academy. It is a unique photo exhibit, curated by the Grades 6,7,8 Class at the school, that profiles some of the County's most influential and architecturally significant buildings, from the time of Confederation to present.
