Help Harness History Campaign

new Harness Shop has opened in Doon Heritage Village at the Waterloo Region Museum. 

Many of the artifacts for this new harness shop will come from our collection, but to fully furnish the shop we need to purchase additional tools, equipment and finished products. These items will help our visitors feel immersed in the historic village time period and allow our staff and volunteers to educate everyone in the trade of a harness maker.
