Mallory Coach House
The Mallory Coach House was built circa 1853 and has been used as a hotel, tavern, doctor’s office, farm house and as a residence. It was purchased by the Township in the fall of 2005, to be used for a tourist attraction, art shows, a meeting place for local groups, and a place to showcase historical artifacts and documents. Under the management of the Heritage Committee, it has undergone major renovations and restorations, funded by grants and generous donations. The garden area and gazebo are also used for community events and weddings.
Summer is upon us, and another year passes when we will not be able to hold our popular annual Strawberry Social. Unfortunately, we will not be opening our Museum doors to the public just yet either.
However, the Mallory Coach House volunteers have been busy repairing and putting out picnic tables and benches for travellers and local families who wish to picnic in the Tony Kall Park. Over a dozen boxwood shrubs were planted around the south and east sides of the back deck. Our gardens have also been planted and are being looked after and the crew who look after the mowing have done a great job. The yard looks great! Thank you!
Inside, we have continued to receive some artifacts and have them catalogued and numbered. A few of the exhibits have been improved. We are going to be ready to open as soon as it is announced that we can. We have hired 2 students who will start working on July 5th. Callie McIntyre is returning this year and we welcome Sydney Chisamore to our roster. Both girls will be able to give tours and answer your questions. Once again, we want to thank Judy Cathcart for the cleaning of the Coach House. She does a great job!
We do hope we see you later this summer!
