GIVE PEACE A CHANCE
Exhibit Opening
Saturday February 28
2-4pm | Admission by donation



FREE EDUCATIONAL TOURS
Bishop House: Museum, Archives, and National Historic Site is not only the boyhood home of Great War flying ace William (Billy) Avery Bishop, it exists to preserve and promote the legacy of our local Veterans, Military, and Victorian history through programs, exhibitions and programming. We recognize that there is a great diversity among our regional schools, and this poses a challenge in accessing cultural resources and facilities. Therefore, starting January 5, 2015 educational tours of Bishop House will be free. To learn more about our programming and Veterans Affairs bussing subsidies, to book a tour, or for any questions, please contact Trevor Pfeffer at 519-371-0031 | tpfeffer@owensound.ca
