The next edition of "Archives Learning Labs" takes place at the Lennox & Addington County Museum & Archives in Napanee on Saturday, October 28th from 10am - noon.
Ron Tasker will discuss the restoration of the Ham House (1817), Bath, as it connects to the built heritage of early Ontario. He will also present finds made in the building and explore how they relate to individuals and significant local and world events.
Ron Tasker is an engineer who grew up in Toronto, and became acquainted with Southeastern Ontario while earning a master of science in Applied Physics from Queen's University. Currently a director of the Frontenac Heritage Foundation, both he and his wife Bonnie have a passion for built heritage. After moving back to Kingston in 2010, they acquired the Ham House at the intersection of Church and Main Streets in Bath. With the help of a few volunteers, they have restored the house to its original 1817 character.
Admission is only $3. For more information about each of the Learning Labs as well as a wide array of programming offered at the L&A County Museum & Archives, please visit www.CountyMuseum.ca or call 613-354-3027
