Christmas Potluck

DRAAG will once again be hosting a Christmas Pot Luck on Friday, December 13 beginning at 5:30.

The social will be held at the beautiful Guy House, part of the Oshawa Community Museum. We will also tour through Henry House, which is exhibited as a period home dating to 1870, as it will be decorated for the holiday season.

The Oshawa Community Museum is the only community museum in Oshawa and depicts local history through the interpretation of three restored buildings. All three homes stand on their original foundations and provide a greater understanding of the lifestyles of Oshawa’s early settlers. 

Henry House was the first of the three homes to be restored by the Oshawa Historical Society and was opened as Henry House Museum in 1960. Since then, the Museum has grown to include Robinson House (added in 1969) and Guy House (added in 1985). 

The Museum buildings were designated as Provincial heritage sites in 1989, the first buildings in Oshawa to receive this designation. 

Please RSVP with Jennifer Weymark, Archivist by December 7, 2012!
