The new exhibit, titled Goulbourn Township’s Pioneers will highlight photos and artefacts from each of the communities within Goulbourn. The event takes place from 1:00 pm – 4:00pm this Monday. Everyone is invited, so come on by the Museum at 2064 Huntley Rd. and enjoy some light refreshments while reliving the past of the first settlers in Goulbourn.  If you have any questions feel free to email us here.
