From July 22, 2018 to May 18, 2020.
Work, laughter, and rebellion... Discover through our first temporary exhibition the daily life of Magog's textile workers, who will touch you with their stories and anecdotes of the past.
In collaboration with the Magog Historical Society, the Merry House’s first temporary exhibition will focus on workers in Magog’s textile industry and will feature the stories of former workers. The textile industry played an important role in the development of the City of Magog, from its beginnings in the early 1880s until its closure in the early 2000s. Numerous Magog residents worked at Dominion Textile. This story unfolds through the eyes of the working class and their personal stories.
A production of the Corporation de la maison Merry, in collaboration with Diane Bernier Design, Éric Corriveau and Sans Cravate.
