Dufferin County Museum Is Up To Something…

The Museum is preparing to open on Wed. August 1st with new exhibits and new experiences.

Between the mid 1800s and early 1900s, much debate surrounded the consumption of alcohol in Canada. While bootleggers tended to their hidden stills, local temperance enthusiasts met to discuss their anti-alcohol agenda. Unlike the United States, the prohibition of alcohol was less stringent in Canada. At no time was the entire country under prohibition. Instead, residents voted for laws restricting alcohol in their own regions, this was known as Local Option. Beginning in 1894, towns and townships in Dufferin County voted to go “dry”. As a rural community with traditionally conservative values, the majority of the county felt that alcohol should be strictly controlled. Of course, not everyone agreed…Join us on a journey as we bring you secret stills and stories from Dufferin County’s past.

Looking forward to seeing everyone!
