Visit the Scugog Shores Museum Village, to learn about what downtown Port Perry looked like 150 years ago, in 1867, and what businesses are thriving now, in 2017.
The Scugog Shores Museum Village is happy to announce “Scugog 150”, an exhibit aimed to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday and Scugog’s success during the last 150 years.
This exhibit features a handmade replica of Port Perry’s historic Queen Street, as well as historical artifacts representing both past and present inhabitants of the downtown’s business sector. This exhibit officially opens in the Village’s Head Schoolhouse, on Saturday, May 27th, 2017, and will be on display until August 27th, 2017.
The Scugog Shores Museum Village is happy to create and host this exhibit, as the exhibit showcases Port Perry’s successful businesses as well as influential Port Perry citizens, both historically and currently. The exhibit provides an opportunity to learn about notable residents, such as: Joseph Bigelow, a businessman who came to Port Perry in 1851 and propelled Port Perry’s development; or Kent Farndale, who is vital in Port Perry’s arts organizations. The exhibit also includes history on Durham Region’s oldest high school, Port Perry High School, and the town’s famous Grain Elevator.
