摘要: 今天参加了Oakville的DoorsOpen,各种故居,博物馆,教堂,让人仿佛置身于中世纪欧洲。之所以推荐是因为景点大多集中在lakeshore/Navy St周围,只须步行就可逛到大部分。贴在这里,让更多人看到,希望不要错过哦。补 ...
今天参加了Oakville的DoorsOpen,各种故居,博物馆,教堂,让人仿佛置身于中世纪欧洲。之所以推荐是因为景点大多集中在lakeshore/Navy St周围,只须步行就可逛到大部分。贴在这里,让更多人看到,希望不要错过哦。

补充一点,到任何一个展示场所都有Doors Open地图,拿着它逛起来就方便多了。

Oakville Galleries
1306 Lakeshore Road East, Oakville

Oakville Galleries in Gairloch Gardens is a public contemporary art gallery located in a preserved lakeshore estate and gardens that date from the 1920s. Originally two entities, Centennial Gallery and Gairloch Gallery were amalgamated in 1980. Oakville Galleries is committed in all aspects of its programming to the presentation of contemporary art.

这个Galleries位于lakeshore豪宅区,Gairloch Gardens内,有停车场。


其实内部只有几副现代艺术照,不大推荐。

和老公坐在花园里YY:p


St. Jude’s Anglican Church
160 William Street, Oakville

St Jude’s was established in 1839. The present building has been its home since 1883. The bell tower, completed in 1896, houses a set of nine chimes cast at the Whitechapel Bell Foundry in London, England, at a cost of $3,587. The tower clock, installed in 1906, is wound by hand once a week.

远远的就被悠扬的钟声吸引来了。
注意图片左下角的黄色路标,Doors Open的设施一般都有插。


坐在角落,静静的欣赏钢琴伴奏



爬上钟楼,了解钟楼的构造和历史。那钟声真是太美妙了。



教堂的后花园的园艺,让我这个新花农学习了半晌。






Merrick Thomas House
Lakeside Park, Navy Street, Oakville

Built in 1829, moved to its present site in 1955, Thomas House is a fine example of a settler’s second house. The one-and-a-half-storey clapboard structure with saltbox roofline, typical of its period, is constructed of white pine logs squared into 12-inch-by-12-inch timbers on a fieldstone foundation. The house is now operated by the Oakville Historical Society.

如解说中所说,180年前移民的旧址。里边的设施都好小,可能过去人的身材都不大吧。



Oakville Museum at Erchless Estate
8 Navy Street, Oakville

This four-acre property includes the circa-1858 home of Oakville’s founding family, the Chisholms, restored to its 1925 appearance, as well as a coach house and gardener’s cottage. Around 1856, R.K. Chisholm constructed the site’s two-storey custom house and bank, the first Oakville branch of the Bank of Toronto. The property is now home to the Oakville Museum.




去年圣诞前来过这里,所以这次没有拍内部,看看圣诞时的装扮。








Oakville Historical Society Archival Collection and Libraries
110 King Street, Oakville

“The Cottages,” located on the north side of the Erchless Estate, were erected in the mid-1950s when Hazel Mathews and Juliet Chisholm relinquished Erchless and the custom house on the estate to Hazel’s son. Now equipped with environmental control systems, the cottages provide the historical society with archival storage, a library and display space

和楼上的博物馆是紧挨着的,是个小小的图书馆。


除了以上这些地方,还参观了Oakville Armoury和George K. Chisholm House/Canadian Sound,前者是展示Peel, Dufferin and Halton 地区军队的,后者也是一所故居,现在变成推销音响设备的地方了。

除了3楼的Oakville Galleries,其他都在lakeshore/Navy附近,步行范围内。其实还有好多设施都没来得及逛,留作明年的作业了。

补充一点,到任何一个展示场所都有Doors Open地图,拿着它逛起来就方便多了。
