Help us save Victoria Farm

HHS Monthly Meeting 19:30 - Monday, May 9th. 2016 Guest Speaker Michael Cooper

Creating a Heritage Centre, St-James Church Hall, 642 rue Main, Hudson, QC, J0P 1H0Michael is a long-time resident of Wakefield,Quebec, and the President of the Fairbairn House Heritage Centre.  A retired educator, he has a lifelong interest in heritage, both preservation and presentation.  His illustrated talk will show how a rather tired 1861 farmhouse, an original round-log cabin, a donated barn, and some 8” x 8” timbers have been brought together to create a heritage centre, which was visited by 2,000 people from 22 countries last summer.

Situated in a small municipal park beside the re-built Wakefield covered bridge, Fairbairn House is becoming both a tourist destination and a community asset, since opening in 2013.
