Exhibits


The four major exhibit rooms focus on life as it was in the Onoway area: Home, Main Street, School and Community Life/Farm.

In addition, short term displays featuring different themes are created throughout the year. The "Hometown Hero" exhibit highlights local citizens who have made significant contributions to Onoway and area. See individual pages showing past "Hometown Hero" displays below.

Signs recognizing historic sites in and around Onoway, throughout Lac Ste. Anne County and beyond have been erected by the Guild. These distinctive signs mark the location of schools, post offices, churches, cemeteries, and significant buildings; many of these are long gone. A ceremony was held at each site to mark the unveiling of the sign. Photos and programs from these activities are linked on this page.
