OTF Grant Supports the Literary Centre and Interpretive Trail Study

In 2020, the Heritage Foundation of Halton Hills received a $75,000 Seed Grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation to examine the feasibility of creating a literary centre and interpretive literary trail dedicated to Lucy Maud Montgomery in Norval, Ontario. The project was completed in July 2021 and provides the foundation for the development of a business plan and financial model for the future Lucy Maud Montgomery Museum and Literary Centre.

The Heritage Foundation of Halton Hills is committed to preserving the built heritage environment and ensuring that in planning and defining the appropriate new spaces, that the Literary Centre is accessible for many community activities and programming in the future.
