2019 Summer Opening!
The summer opening day for the South Frontenac Museum will be on Saturday, May 18, from 1-4 p.m. at the Museum at 5595 Road 38 (30 minutes north of Kingston on Gardiners Road) in Hartington.
The theme of this year’s exhibit is South Frontenac from 1900 to 1929 – Before, During, and After the Great War. The centrepiece is our extensive collection of artifacts and records related to the 146th Battalion of the Canadian Expeditionary Force – a battalion created to recruit soldiers from the Counties of Frontenac and Lennox & Addington. Supporting displays illustrate the contribution of women to the war effort. There are also exhibits of tools and other items used on the home front.
All are welcome.
The museum will be open until Labour Day on Saturday, Sunday, and Wednesday afternoons from 1-4.
For more information call 613-376-3027 x2600.

The South Frontenac Museum
We are dedicated to preserving and sharing the stories of the people who have lived here over the centuries, of their struggles to scrape out a living for their families, and of the geology of this amazing landscape that defines and constrains the economic options.
We have a lot of work to do and need your participation!
We need extraverts to serve as docents welcoming visitors to the museum; we are looking for creative types to develop new exhibits; there are jobs for detail-oriented people to catalog new artifacts; and history junkies can research and document our artifacts for our records or website.
Contact us to volunteer with the Museum, to join the Heritage Society, or to research the region.
