Eleven new communities join Doors Open Ontario 2004

Canada’s one-of-a-kind heritage touring adventure Doors Open Ontario is gearing up for its 2004 season. Communities across the province are opening the doors to architecturally significant buildings and free of charge.

This year, 34 events are taking place from April to October, including 11 new events in Kawartha Lakes, Kenora, Kincardine, Meaford, Mississippi Mills, Oshawa, Oxford County, Perth, Sault Ste. Marie, St. Marys and Whitchurch-Stouffville.

Doors Open Ontario invites residents and visitors to explore intriguing buildings, many of which are normally closed to the public. In addition to looking behind closed doors, visitors participate in unique experiences and discover Ontario’s rich heritage firsthand. A website featuring all 34 events can be found at www.doorsopenontario.on.ca. In April 2004, a full-colour guide featuring a calendar of events along with images and descriptions of featured heritage sites from each community event will be released and available through 1-800-ONTARIO.

The Ontario Heritage Foundation is an agency of the Government of Ontario, dedicated to identifying, preserving, protecting and promoting Ontario’s heritage for all of us to enjoy and for others toexperience in the future.
