Although canoes were invented as a method of transportation, they have transitioned into a pleasure craft accessible to all. Our newest exhibit, Artisan and Industry, shares the story of canoe manufacturing, and it illustrates how this industry impacted Peterborough.
In order to celebrate the new exhibit, we’ve been collecting family canoe stories. We wanted to learn about specific canoes and hear why each vessel is special to an individual or family. In June, we asked people to share photos and memories while using the hashtag #OurCanoeStory.
