ABOYNE, ON – Wellington County Museum and Archives’ newest exhibit is Stick to it! Eric Huber’s Cane Collection. A collector from Guelph/Eramosa Township, Eric currently has over 200 canes and walking sticks in his extensive collection. This exhibit is the latest in the Wellington County Collects series that highlights a local collector.

This exhibit features a selection of canes and walking sticks chosen by Eric to show off his best, favourite and most unique parts of his collection.” 

The exhibit will open January 25 and run until June 7.
