Doors Open to explore local treasures

Doors Open is returning to Whitchurch-Stouffville this summer on June 4th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Governed by the Ontario Heritage Trust and organized by participating communities, the anticipated event offers an opportunity for visitors far and wide to explore experiences they may not normally get to see, both virtually and in-person.

Totalling 11 experiences, visitors to Doors Open this year will get the opportunity to see returning favourites like the Richmond Hill Live Steamers, Holy Theotokos Convent and Stouffville Memorial Christian Church.

New sites to the repertoire, like Stouffville Junction, Ocean Nursery and many others, are all free of charge for the day.

Guests can enjoy a guided tour in downtown Stouffville by a member of the Heritage Advisory Committee. The tour details have been researched and fact-checked by local historian Fred Robbins.

Participants can also take a self-guided tour of the Jean-Baptiste Lainé Site in south Stouffville.

The museum, library and Latcham Art Centre are also venues that you’ll want to enjoy during the Doors Open event.

To welcome this anticipated event back, town staff have organized an exciting kick-off celebration to be held at Stouffville Junction, located at 6162 Main Street in Stouffville.

Here, visitors can be part of a historic plaque unveiling celebration, the inaugural Heritage Awards presentation, and an official start to Doors Open Whitchurch-Stouffville.

Doors Open Whitchurch-Stouffville is part of the Stouffville Celebrates Summer Series which is presented by telMAX.
