Doors Open: A Student Reflection
On Saturday September 27th, the Middle School students turned our classroom into a museum resembling the original Wilson Farmhouse. We did this to participate in Doors Open Oakville, where local businesses open up to the public.
People who were lucky enough to come on a tour were swept into the past to meet the Wilson Family, complete with props, actors and a tour guide.
We found period costumes to wear and pretended we were members of the Wilson family, such as Isaac, Annie, and Ernest Wilson.
The Clanmore farmhouse, which houses the Middle School, was built from 1901-1903 by Isaac Wilson who was born in England and immigrated to Canada in the late 1800’s. He then married Annie Snyder and they had two children, the eldest being Ernest.
Oakville is filled with rich history and we think it is very important to explore our beautiful town’s past and you should too!
