Museum Wall of Honour
The Museum on the Boyne’s Wall of Honour was created in 2003 to recognize contribution(s), support and/ or promotion of history and heritage matters in South Simcoe County and at the Museum. Recipients of this award value our local history and work hard to collect, preserve and advocate for it.
Each year a person is elected from a deserving group of nominees by the Museum on the Boyne Advisory Committee. A presentation occurs during Heritage Week to honour the dedication of the individual with family, friends, and colleagues in the heritage field.
