In this online exhibit, we explore the inspiring women, past and present, who chose to serve their Grey County communities as politicians.

Nels Maher Print Shop

Our Print Shop is named in the memory of a friend to Grey Roots, Nelson Maher. Nels worked for what added up to hundreds of hours - first to restore the equipment, then to set it up so that it could be viewed, and finally in giving tours, interviews and demonstrations.

This beautiful exhibit, created by celebrated Indigenous artist Nyle Miigizi Johnston, invokes Anishnaabe creation stories, while driving home the massive impact the treaty process had and continues to have on First Nations communities.


Grey County is distinct for its natural richness – its land, forest and water have sustained and protected the many people who have called this region home and continue to do so. Abundance explores the above using artefacts, photographs, archival records and (soon to come) play-based interactives relating to the subthemes of Forests, Agriculture, and Water.
