MoD Artifacts

The MoD holds a collection of over 10,000 artifacts relating to Dufferin County and the people who were born, lived in or contributed to the region. Highlights include a collection over 200 historic quilts, the W. J. Hughes Corn Flower glass collection as well as paintings, agricultural tools, textiles, toys, sports equipment and objects related to local businesses and institutions.

The MoD has begun the process to digitize the entire artifact collection, the first grouping of artifacts to be made available to the public online will be the W. J. Hughes Corn Flower Glass collection. Digitizing artifacts is an ongoing project, and new acquisitions are uploaded to the online database as resources allow.

Should you have any questions about the artifact holdings (3D objects and art) at the MoD, OR if you would like to make an appointment to view a particular artifact please contact: Sarah Robinson (Curator):
