2019 Doors Open
History & heritage
The Moncton Heritage Conservation Board, in partnership with Resurgo Place, is delighted to invite the public to celebrate our city’s rich architectural history during this year’s edition of Doors Open on Saturday, September 28, 2019. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., a selection of Moncton’s most interesting properties will open their doors, allowing curious participants to visit and explore some of the elements that constitute Moncton’s historical and architectural landscape, free of charge. The city’s growth and evolution is revealed by visual representations of the past. Buildings, like sculptures or paintings, are material witnesses to the passage of time and have much insight to offer on social and economic trends. Through the historical and architectural adventure that is Doors Open, participants are offered a unique behind the scenes look at some of the city’s most curious constructions and landmarks. An event launch with guest speakers will be held in the St. James’ Gate Event Room at 9:30 a.m. Light snacks and refreshments will be served. All are welcome. This year’s locations can be visited in any order: • St. James’ Gate - Former Salvation Army Citadel and Globe Laundry, 14-16 Church Street • Former Record House, 93 Victoria Street • Former Tuttle Brothers Funeral Home, 171 Lutz Street • Notre-Dame-Du-Sacré-Cœur - Former Moncton Hospital, 107-141 King Street • Stantec - Former Eastern Central Trust Building, 1199 Main Street Historical interpretation will be offered at each location by volunteers from the Friends of Resurgo Place Inc, the Moncton Heritage Conservation Board and members of our community.
