17 historical sites in Thunder Bay are on display today.
It’s part of Doors Open, and Spokesperson Andrew Cotter tells us it helps residents learn more about the city’s past.
“I think it’s valuable because it really allows the public to see the inner workings of the organizations and really have an appreciation of our culture and our heritage and how it impacts the City,” Cotter explains.
You can get a glimpse inside areas that are normally closed to the public, from ten until four today.
You can find a list of locations for today’s event below. (Staff Photo)
