Belgian horses

WCHS participated in the Centre Wellington Doors Open Even On June 17, 2017. We were located at the Rosedale Farm and spoke with visitors from as far away as Welland. Our booth was located in the historic barn overlooking the pasture housing the Belgium horses who were the models for the horses that were reproduced and are stabled in the Wellington County Museum barn.
