New Community Event!

You are invited to join friends at the Coldwater Canadiana Museum beginning on Tuesday, July 27 anytime between 10 am and 3 pm. We want to start a new reoccurring event called “Canadiana Community Days” on the Museum grounds every Tuesday from July 27 to August 31.

No admission fee required and the picnic area is always open. Plan to get together with old friends and meet new ones as you practice your craft at your local Museum.

All Crafters are invited to bring a project to work on, a chair, and a lunch if you wish. Some craft materials will be available to try. Free basic instruction by experienced crafters may be offered.

Accompanied children are welcome. There will be activities in the schoolhouse and playhouse.

Fund The Foundation!

Notice what’s wrong with this picture?

IT’S CROOKED!

Our beloved Woodrow homestead is sinking on one side! The Woodrow homestead, which was built in the 1800s, is in need of a new foundation.  Without this restoration, the homestead walls will become damaged causing the homestead to be unusable which would be a tremendous loss to our museum and the entire Coldwater community. 

To prevent this, WE NEED YOUR HELP! The cost to restore the homestead will be huge, especially as a volunteer-run museum.  We are running a GoFundMe campaign and would be honoured if you supported our cause of preserving Coldwater’s history.
