The Meaford Museum chose to showcase commemorative porcelain collection that depicts the Municipality’s history. These pieces were commonly available at train stations as souvenirs. With depictions of local buildings and commemoration of special events in Meaford, these plates provide a great glimpse into Meaford’s history.

It is such an honour for our museum to be chosen for this display,” said Museum Services Coordinator Jody Seeley. “We are so excited to have this opportunity for our local history to reach all of the visitors coming through Queen’s Park.”

The displays will be in place until the end of July, 2019. The Legislative Assembly is located at 191-111 Wellesley Street West in Toronto, Ontario.
