Grand Day Out – Saturday, June 17, 2023!

Woodlands Cultural Centre Museum

For this year’s outing we have decided to visit the Woodlands Cultural Centre, the Mohawk Residential School and Chapel, have lunch at the Burger Barn, Pauline Johnston’s home and Iroqrafts!

The day will begin at 9:15am when we meet in the Graham St. parking lot behind the Woodstock Public Library. From there we will carpool to the Woodlands Cultural Centre. Admission is $7 for adults, $5 for senior and students.

After Woodlands we then will walk around the Mohawk Residential School, Kathie Richards will provide some information about the history of this school. Then the group will make its way to the Mohawk Chapel.

After a lovely morning spent visiting historic sites the group will enjoy a delicious lunch at the Burger Barn! A casual dining place serving traditional favourites with a twist!

Lunch will be followed by a walk around Pauline Johnston’s home at the Chiefswood National Historic Site, if open to the public there will be a chance to explore inside her home.

The final stop on the tour will be a visit to the Iroqrafts store, an Indigenous arts and crafts outlet.
