Friday, May 31 – (either, or both) a Morning and an Afternoon Tour
All bus tours leave from the loading area near the South Village Residence and Cafeteria. Three local historians, Bob Bell, Grant Karcich, and Glenn McKnight, will guide these tours. Bus and admission – $20 each tour.
The Morning Tour - 9:00 to 12:15 (Jump to Afternoon Tour)
During a travels to the Canadian Automobile Museum (with over 70 vehicles), followed by a tour of the Oshawa Military and Industrial Museum (a.k.a. The Ontario Regiment (RCAC) Museum), Bob and Glenn will talk about the history of Oshawa’s industrial development. Those who would rather spend time researching at the nearby offices of the Durham Branch OGS, rather than stay at the military museum stop, may wish to walk the short distance.
The Afternoon Tour - 1:00 to 4:15
Parkwood Estate, also featured in major films, was the home of the McLaughlin family, whose members have contributed financially to many other fine public buildings in Oshawa. Along the lakeshore, at Lake View Park, is the Oshawa Museums and Archives Buildings, two of which are shown here. While on the bus, Glenn and Grant will highlight historically significant locations.
