McCrae House, the historic birthplace of John McCrae, doctor, soldier and author of In Flanders Fields, is closing for renovations starting at the end of the day on Nov. 30. McCrae House will reopen in May of 2015.
The renovations are part of Guelph Museum’s celebration of the 100th anniversary of the writing of In Flanders Fields in 2015.
The museum has hired BaAM, an exhibition design firm based in Toronto, to design and oversee the project.
Guelph Museums hopes to refurbish the site and exhibitions, establishing McCrae House as a premier destination for those who wish to learn about and honour LCol. McCrae.
The McCrae House is located at 108 Water Street in Guelph.
