Saturday April 4th until December 31st, 2015 in the Main Gallery

From the smallest red brick church to the grand Victorian-style courthouse, the buildings of Dufferin County hold the stories of generations past. If the walls could talk, they would tell you about the farmer that felled hundreds of trees and built a log home – entirely by himself.

The DCMA invites you to explore our 2015 Main Exhibit, If the Walls Could Talk. Discover the architectural beauty of the region through historical photographs and learn about the people that lived their lives in these buildings through rare artifacts and first-person accounts.
