Come join us on for an Open House on Saturday December 11 from 1-4 pm at the Callander Bay Heritage Museum and Alex Dufresne Gallery!

Our current art show “Petit Noel Exhibit & Sale” features the works of local and area artists such as Dianne Allen, Trevor Busch, Susanne Carr, Brian Chute, Nancy Coupland, Claire Domitric, Lorraine Guillemette, Beth Jackson, Patricia Kirton-Bailey, Alyssa Marandola, Julie Patterson, Bronwen Quick, Arthur Ranney, Denise Ribson, Kathleen Ryan, Norma Sanders, June Stewart, Brent Trach, Marianne Vander Dussen, and Doreen Wood. Pieces range from acrylic and watercolour, to drypoint and copper etching prints, to porcelain and cards and nothing is bigger than 20 x 20.

The exhibit closes on December 17th.

Interested in the events that shaped not only Callander’s history, but the region as a whole? In the museum you’ll find information and artefacts that tell the story of the logging mills and the shipping industry on Lake Nipissing – both of which were instrumental in the development of the town. On an international level, Callander found itself on the front page of newspapers across the world during the week of May 28th, 1934 when the world’s first surviving quintuplets were born to the Dionne family just down the road. In fact our museum is located in the house and practice of Dr. Allan Roy Dafoe, physician to the babies and you will find this story told within our walls. As well our turn-of-the-century old tyme barber shop is as unique as it is interesting.

There will be no admission for the afternoon, but donations are always welcome. We hope to see you there!
