Help Bring a Train to Tower Hill!

$2,680 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 45 people in 5 months
Created January 30, 2019
The West Parry Sound District Museum –also known as the Museum on Tower Hill– is installing an exciting new feature! A working model of the Ottawa, Arnprior and Parry Sound railway.

The model brings Depot Harbour back to life and remembers the era of the lumber barons that ruled the Parry Sound District. The funds raised from this campaign will be used to make the necessary upgrades the E Roy Smith Gallery to install the model.

Help us reach our goal of $5,000 by February 28th and it will be matched by an anonymous donor!
