Billy Bishop Home: Museum, Archives & National Historic Site is committed to teaching our community, especially future generations, the incredible contributions and the role of many Canadians (including Billy Bishop), who sacrificed and served to preserve our freedom.  It is our goal to help people remember, respect and honour the sacrifices that have been made by our military.

Each year the museum pays tribute to a group of area veterans.  The biographic information of the featured veterans is on display at the Heritage Mall through December until early January.  During this time, schools, groups, and visitors have the opportunity to visit the museum and learn more about our local veterans through this Honouring Our Local Veterans display.  It will then be on display at various venues in Owen Sound and Grey/Bruce Counties, including Larry Miller MP Bruce/Grey/Owen Sound constituency office.
