Spotlight On Gibson House Museum Guided Walking Tour
Some of Willowdale’s stories are well-known, while others are seldom heard. This hour-long tour introduces some of the heroes, rebels, reformers and storytellers who called Willowdale home, from the 1830s all the way to modern times.

Along the way, we’ll explore how stories are told and the ways they change based on who is telling them. Who do we consider heroes, and how do we celebrate them? Join us for an opportunity to stretch your curiosity as well as your legs.
