Cornwall - Aug. 23, 2011 - The Cornwall and Seaway Valley Doors Open Organizing Committee is once again pleased to stage the ninth Doors Open event to be held in Cornwall and throughout S.D.&G.!
The concept of doors open is to welcome the general public into our historic and cultural locations, but with a bit of a difference. Some of the sites which will be open on Sept 10th and 11th are not normally open to the general public. Some sites are open on a regular basis, but with an entrance fee. For this particular weekend, that entrance fee will be waived. Many of our sites have planned special events or activities such as music, stories of the past from those who have lived through it and special displays - the list goes on and on. The list of sites is varied, with each site promising to provide a unique look into the past of the Cornwall and Seaway Valley Region.
There are over 20 different sites and tours throughout Cornwall, Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry for you to enjoy. Many of the favourite sites from past events will participate again this year, and some new sites will be added to the mix. We encourage you to take advantage of this special weekend - some of these sites will not be open again until next year and ... the special events will be awesome!
