    Knock, knock. Who’s there?

    YOU ARE!

    Welcome to Doors Open Fergus Elora 

    We’re opening the doors to some of the coolest sites in Fergus and Elora. With 10 locations on the self-guided tour, each with their own unique history and experiences to be had, plus more than a few with local tales of great woman who have helped shape our nation’s history, you’ll be inspired by new experiences and a peak behind the scenes.

    Coordinated by the Township of Centre Wellington in association with Heritage Centre Wellington, the Wellington County Museum and Archives and Ontario Heritage Trust, Doors Open is a celebration of our community’s heritage.  It is part of the provincial Doors Open events that take place across Ontario from April to October each year.
