Belle Vue and the Reynolds Sisters
Selected works from the Windsor Community Museum and Fort Malden NHSC
March 26- April 19
1815 saw the end of the War of 1812, and in 1816 construction was started on the largest and most beautiful home built in Canada at the time, Belle Vue. It was home to, and designed by, Catherine Reynolds, considered one of the earliest native born female artists in Canada and her sister Margaret. Belle Vue is one of two Palladian buildings declared nationally significant in Canada and is recognized as an important historic site federally, provincially, and municipally. Discover the history of this once grand mansion and the two artists that lived there. This exhibit is sponsored in part by a generous donation from Libro Credit Union.

This former Michigan Central Railroad Station, ca. 1896, is a quaint Art Gallery

A full season of exhibits by local artists and travelling exhibits from Ontario museums and galleries make this
heritage building a vital center for the visual arts, offering art and craft lessons, our unique Artisan Shoppe and three needle art guilds.
Our attached Caboose museum highlights local railroad history.
The Gallery is owned and operated by the Fort Malden Guild of Arts and Crafts,
