Preserving our HERitage: History from the Womyn’s Perspective

The Adelaide Hunter Hoodless Homestead (St. George, ON) and the Brant Historical Society (Brantford, ON) are partnering for a joint exhibit titled “Preserving our HERitage: History from the Womyn’s Perspective.”

The exhibit is about Women’s Institutes history, with focus on how WIs have recorded their own history. Both museums showcase the many accomplishments by WI groups which have existed for over one hundred years. Over the years WIs have recorded their own history in many ways including minute books, magazines, Tweedsmuir scrapbooks and other history books.

Both museums have a different story to tell about Women’s Institutes. The Brant Historical Society displays the history of the local WIs within Brant County. The Adelaide Hunter Hoodless Homestead, as the birthplace of WI co-founder Adelaide Hoodless and the office of the Federated Women’s Institutes of Canada, will display how the WIs started and how they developed into the large organization it is today.

Visit both locations and learn more about these groups of inspiring Canadian women. The exhibit is open from May 8th until July 1st, 2017. See any location first to receive a ticket valid at both museums.

May 8 – July 1, 2017:

Monday to Thursday 10AM to 4PM
Sunday 1PM to 4PM
