Recent Research Visitors to the HM

A local artist has been visiting the HM’s library to study native spirituality.

Dr. Alicia Hawkins returned some artifact collections that had been borrowed for her research project at Laurentian University. She, along with two graduate students,  have been studying archaeological site locations in Tay and Medonte townships for possible testing and excavation.

Military Students

This past week an unusual group of tourists visited the Huronia Museum. About 30 students, military personnel from around the world attending courses at Base Borden, spent a post-exams “relaxation” day visiting Midland while their exam were being marked. They visited the museum, Ste. Marie Among the Hurons, had lunch and got a chance to see small town Ontario life. Base Borden has 18 schools for various military education programs and trains students from around the world. Groups of these special students visit the museum about 6 times a year.
