Meaford Hall

This restored early 20th century Town Hall was converted to a community arts and culture centre in 2006. It has two adjoining attractive galleries on the main floor (one flight up from the ground floor. The bulk of the Fred Haines art work will be shown in these galleries.

The building will be open from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm daily.

Georgian Bay Secondary School

In 1958, Haines gave the Meaford High School 23 of his works which were hung in the halls of the school, probably not the safest place that they could be hung, but they were calculated to encourage and inspire students to take an interest in art. In 1967 the old high school was relaced by a new building and became Georgian Bay Secondary School. At that time an alcove was built into the main corridor that carried through to the second floor, where a window was installed to create a viewing gallery.

The school will be open from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm daily.

Meaford Museum

The Meaford Museum was first built as the pumping station for the Town of Meaford. It was converted to the town museum in 1961. In 2006 it was completely renovated and enlarged  to reopen as the museum for the newly amalgamated Muncipality of Meaford, which embraces the former Town of Meaford and the Townships of St. Vincent and Sydenham. Some of Haines' work will be shown here, mostly early work and work of a personal nature.

The Museum will be open from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm daily.
