TOUCHING HISTORY : OBJECTS FROM YESTERDAY AND TODAY
With the emotion the evoke and the way they define identity, objects create material bonds for people, between the present and the past. For this reason, and many others, the Marguerite Bourgeoys Historic Site draws on its vast collection of heritage items to offer a range of in-person and virtual activities revolving around the relationship between people and objects.
