Heritage Hall opened it’s doors for the first time during the 2016. The idea to create a permanent home for history and heritage came about during the Fair’s bicentennial year (2011 to 2012) which was focused on the rich and colourful history of the longest continuous fair in Canada. You don’t have to spend much time in the Village of Williamstown or anywhere in Glengarry County to realize the significance of its history to Canada.
In 2017 the St. Lawrence Valley Agricultural Society celebrated Canada’s 150th anniversary throughout the fair weekend with Heritage Hall as the focal point of this celebration. We would like to thank the following organizations who helped us celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday: Glengarry Nor’Westers and Loyalist Museum, Sir John Johnson Manor House Committee, St. Andrew’s United Church Williamstown, the Williamstown Green Thumb Horticultural Society, Glengarry Celtic Music Hall of Fame, Glengarry Archives, Glengarry Agricultural Wall of Fame, Glengarry Sports Hall of Fame and the Glengarry Fencibles.
We hope to say many of our community partner organizations returning this year along with a few newcomers. All of these history and heritage organizations will be telling their stories, through exhibits and displays, to the many fairgoers who will come through our gates on the 2018 Fair weekend. Please take some time to visit Heritage Hall during the 2018 Fair and help us celebrate Glengarry’s rich history.
