1914 Heritage Bank  

The restored bank houses the photographic exhibits.  Touch screens, audio, multi-media and permanent and changing digital photography exhibits tell our sto

ries, showing our communities as they are now, how they were… and ask us to imagine how they might be in the future. Upstairs, the Interactive Tourism Salon helps showcase our region's tourist and cultural assets.

It’s also an event venue— a great place for a sit-down dinner, a family or community celebration.  Upstairs, more intimate exhibit spaces are suitable for meetings and small gatherings.  

 

The 1883 Timber Frame Barn 

Mary Gillett, of Dutton, donated the barn. After it was disassembled, labeled and numbered and transported to the site, it was adjusted to fit the space and retrofitted. The rustic posts and beams are still visible inside and create a fabulous backdrop for our state-of-the-art digital Photography Lab, the Foto Stable, and The Cookery—our chef-designed studio kitchen.

This is the heart of The Bank, where interactive culinary experiences are stirred with creativity and community.

 

The Reception

This is an entirely new building, linking The Bank and The Cookery. The Welcome Pathway, embedded with inscribed stones to celebrate, honour and remember individuals, families and organizations, brings everyone of all ages and abilities to the front door.


The Deck and the Garden

Outside The Bank, you can sit on the Deck and enjoy a Carolinian teaching garden. The Garden Pathway, embedded with inscribed, community-donated stones, frames the Gardens. Barnboard-faced fencing edges the Garden.
