Other Ways to Help the museum

Purchase a solid granite bench and help to beautify our river walkway for years to come, while supporting the Museum. A bench may be donated in memory of, or in honour of a family member or a friend or, simply donated for people to use while they enjoy walking the river pathway. Donors are encouraged to pick a location for their bench from a list of designated spots along the walkway and are able to have a custom inscription engraved on their bench.

Total cost of purchasing a bench is $1,373.50. A portion of the proceeds ($300.00) will be used to maintain the property and grounds as well as future projects of the museum. Donors will receive a tax receipt for the full amount of $1,373.50.

Please contact the museum at 705-955-1930 or for more information.

Enjoy the view from the various granite benches along the garden trail.
