Doors Open 2011 Here We Come!



I think that the numbers speak for themselves. Burlington's very first Doors Open event drew just shy of 5,000 site visits over June 12 and 13th. 15 sites including St. Luke's Church, Ireland House, Knox Presbyterian Church, the Gingerbread House, the Estaminet, Lowville School House and Lowville United Church hosted tours, provided storyboards, and allowed access to archives. Several sites even provided homemade scones, tea,coffee and lemonade. Many visitors said they have been devoted fans of Doors Open events in other communites and commented that they were more than pleased that Burlington partipated this year. Hopefully this will just be the start.
