This weekend is Doors Open at the Aultsville Train Station just west of #UpperCanadaVillage where you can view the British Child exhibit. 🚂 You'll learn how over 100,000 children from the British Isles were sent to Canada to work as contracted or indentured labourers in rural areas, in homes and on farms. These children are known as British Home Children and many came to Eastern Ontario.
📅: Saturday and Sunday: 11 am to 4 pm
📍: Aultsville Train Station at 13740 County Road 2, Morrisburg
