Doors Open Markham takes place Sept. 30 from 10am to 4pm.
This year’s free Doors Open Markham event marks this significant milestone in our nation’s history. The sites include historical places that reflect our community’s past as well as sites and programs that represent the diverse cultures that contribute to our city now.
The City of Markham is a place where the old and the new co-exist as a unique expression of our community. With our blossoming downtown Markham Centre taking shape only a short distance away from historic Unionville, we are a city of contrasts and diversity that reflects our civic motto “Leading While Remembering”.
Some of the 2017 sites include: Markham Heritage Estates, Markham Museum, Unionville Train Station, Markham Village Train Station, Unionville Presbyterian Church, St. Philips on the Hill Anglican Church, Wong Dai Sin Temple, Thornhill Village Library, Willian Grant House and Rhenish Lutheran Church, McKay Art Centre, Stiver Mill Cultural Centre, Varley Art Gallery, George’s Railview Model Railroad Club, St.Maurice and St. Verena Coptic Orthodox Church, Bethesda Lutheran Church and Heintzman House are some of the 2017 sites.
