Buildings are often the most visible and tangible evidence of a community’s history. They tell the story of everyday aspirations and struggles, of a community’s triumphs and its tribulations, of spiritual life and the daily grind. The more that we understand about the history of architecture, the better we can “read” the buildings that stand today to understand what they can tell us about the people who built them.
The entries below will help interested people in Carman/Dufferin learn more about buildings and architecture, and what those subjects can tell us about our past.
