Tea on a Train

July 11 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Join us at the CWHC on our historic Coach 4884 for the return of Tea on the Train! We are hosting three teas in partnership with the Reach Centre to nourish your body and mind. Tickets include tea and treats prepared and served by Reach to be enjoyed alongside a presentation by CWHC Curator Zack McLean, with a new subject at each tea.

The presentation on July 11th is Service and Splendor: Dining on the Rails and Waves. It only makes sense to start off with a presentation of what service looked like on cars like Coach 4884 back when they still provided service from Owen Sound. Find out just how much service (not to mention menus) have changed since the arrival of rails in North America.

On July 17th you can come for “Ferried Through the Years.” As the CWHC and the Chi-Cheemaun both celebrate anniversaries, join us to learn not only about the history of the ferry service, but also how the ferry service has had a direct impact on our museum!

Join us on August 1st for “Everyday Historians.” While many people, events, and organizations have dedicated biographers, photographers, and records, much of our understanding of the past also comes from the regular folks who lived through the events that became history. Climb aboard to find out how the study of history on South Georgian Bay has benefited from the belongings and records created by people living their regular lives.

Tickets are $20 each and can be purchased at the CWHC or online at https://www.zeffy.com/ticketing/23f2b117-e804-4092-81f6-f35bf2d60f67
