Innovative Art Project to Restore Seaforth’s Historic Round House Exhibition Hall

 In June of 1900, the Seaforth Agricultural Society acquired an acre of land from Mr. Ed Coleman—and on it, by 1902, had built an unusual structure.

The Seaforth Round House, as it’s known, is one of very few unique two-storey octagonal buildings remaining in Rural Ontario, with its many windows, double staircase, and exhibition gallery.  Each year since 1902, the Round House has welcomed exhibitors as part of the town’s Fall Fair—and preserving this important historical asset is front and centre of a special fundraising project being undertaken by the Municipality of Huron East.

Art Unhinged will involve talented artists turning old used doors into art.  Local artisans will work their magic to convert discarded doors into things of beauty—the ultimate recycling project.  Fortuitously, the artwork will be completed in time to be part of county-wide Doors Open Huron planned for September 13 and 14, 2014.  With the theme “Re-Imagine Huron–Step Into Our Stories,” the Doors Open event will showcase Art Unhinged pieces at various of its sites, after which the one-of-a-kind art will be on display throughout Huron East.

The redecorated and re-purposed Art Unhinged doors will be auctioned at the Collectibles, Crafts, Gifts & Toy Show & Sale, sponsored by the Seaforth Agricultural Society on November 29th and 30th in the Agri-plex and Seaforth & District Community Centre.  Net proceeds from the sale will go toward future restoration of the Round House.

Agriculture has always been and still is an integral part of the County of Huron.  Preserving an important piece of this history in the form of the Round House is not only fitting, but essential to recognizing those who settled and developed Huron County and those who work the land and tend the livestock to this day.
