The Gibson House Museum is proud to present:
The Tale of a Town – Gibson House!

The Tale of a Town brings their storymobile (mobile recording studio) to conduct interviews about our memories of Willowdale between June 21 and July 1, 2017.

The Tale of a Town — Canada is a nationwide theatre and media initiative aiming to capture the collective community memory of Canada’s main streets, one story at a time. This cultural project has been touring the country, visiting small towns and big cities alike, collecting oral histories through interviews with independent business owners, local heroes, community stakeholders, and neighbourhood residents. After visiting every province and territory, the project turns its attention to Canada’s longest main street this summer with its Living Archive: Highway 11 project — the next stop is here in Willowdale at the historic Gibson House Museum, a project funded by the Toronto Arts Council – Animating Historic Sites program!
