One of Southern Ontario’s great heritage institutions hits an important milestone this summer; Westfield Heritage Village is turning 50!
We’re hoping you’ll join us on June 15th to toast Westfield! What started as a collection of four heritage buildings at Westfield’s official opening in 1964 has evolved into a living, breathing, pioneer village with 35 buildings, over 200 volunteers and thousands of artefacts.
Thousands of visitors every year are transported by Westfield’s wealth of 18th, 19th and early 20th Century heritage which is brought to life by volunteer costumed interpreters. Those volunteers fundraise every year to bring new buildings to Westfield through the Friends of Westfield organization with the Foundation as their charitable partner.
All told, Westfield has cemented itself as the cornerstone of Southern Ontario’s rich cultural heritage over the last 50 years, an achievement we can’t wait to celebrate. Details of the celebration will be posted in April on the Westfield website at www.westfieldheritage.ca.
