Discover Maud in the Garden

 

After two years of hard work, our statue of Maud is installed in the garden, unveiled on June 20, 2015 by The Honourable Elizabeth Dowdeswell, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario.  A beautiful work of art by local artist, Wynn Walters, she is seated in the garden looking across the fields she loved.  Visit Maud in our church garden, sit and take your picture with her and finish with a tour of the home where she lived and wrote…

We are proud to bring Maud to the garden with the help of The Ontario Trillium Foundation.
