Under Renovation

Slowly but surely, progress is being made on the renovations for the Wesley Huenefeld Agricultural Building!

In 2020, we had to close down the Agricultural Building due to air quality issues. Since then, our staff, volunteers and several local businesses have been working hard to make the exhibition hall once again fit to be reopened to the public. Renovations have included replacing all of the insulation in the roof, removing the gravel flooring and replacing it with concrete, looking to install air exchange units, and more. A reopening date is yet to be determined. Check in on our website and Facebook page to stay up-to-date as progress is made!
