WELLINGTON COUNTY, ON – Wellington County Collects is back at the Wellington County Museum and Archives with Prior to Power: Doug Evans’ Collection of Hand Tools. This exhibit explores Doug’s over 900-piece collection of hand tools and equipment. 

“Prior to Power will showcase just a small sampling of Doug’s massive collection,” Lindsay Woelfle, Curator of the exhibit said. “With a collection this size, that is constantly evolving, we wanted to offer some of the most unique and interesting pieces while still giving a good overview of the collection as a whole.”  

The exhibit will open July 13 and run until January 5, 2020. Join us for a lecture on July 14 at 2:00 pm where Doug will discuss his collection, collecting strategy and some of his favourite pieces in the exhibit.
