Community Events: A Little Bit of History with Every Step

September 30, 2014 - Updated: September 30, 2014

There's always something to do in Port Credit or nearby Clarkson, home to two of Mississauga's museums. With the glorious weather this weekend, we hope you were out and about! On Sunday, it was the World War I Experience Day at Benares Historic House (map).

 

 

Re-enactors from the History Matters Association and the Museums of Mississauga shared first-person stories to give visitors a hands-on experience using wartime reproductions. There was a little bit of history with every step throughout the property. Everyone who passed through the doors of the Benares House this weekend left with a real sense of everyday life on the home front and in the trenches.

 

It was a truly humbling experience and brought ample opportunity for education, entertainment and community interaction. And with necks craned upward, the day was topped off with a fly-over of replica WWI planes.

 

This wonderful event was supported by the Hazel McCallion Foundation of the Arts, Culture, Heritage and the Friends of the Museums of Mississauga.
