Feature Exhibition Rebels and Reformers Opening March 18
The Dundas Museum & Archives is enthusiastic to announce the opening of our latest feature exhibition, Rebels and Reformers: Dundas on the Road to Responsible Government, which will be showing in the third gallery from March 18 until June 3.
The exhibit will feature nods to local urban legends such as Mackenzie’s cave, accompanied by key rebel relics and beautifully crafted artifacts. These include the Durham banner, cups and saucers used by Sir Allan MacNab, the goblet presented to Mrs. Ogg by William Lyon MacKenzie, and many more.
Unstable. Volatile. Chaotic. These words describe what it was like in Dundas and Canada in the early 1800s. This instability ultimately led to a new method of government and set us on the path to the system that we enjoy today. Rebels and Reformers: Dundas on the Road to Responsible Government tells the story of the reform movement, highlighting the Dundas connection to people and events during this fascinating time in Canadian history.
