Doors Open Ottawa celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2022 and took place in June. This was an opportunity to visit a wide variety of venues that often have limited or no access to the public. After being online only due to the pandemic, the in-person format was resumed for many of the 2022 venues.
I visited three venues, either with a friend or on my own. The second venue, which is the subject of this journal entry, was Cumberland Heritage Village. The other two were Rideau Hall and Beechwood Cemetary.
Cumberland Heritage Village depicts Canadian rural life in the 1920s and 1930s in a village setting. It is located in Cumberland Ontario, about a half-hour drive from Ottawa. It features a wide variety of buildings, farm equipment, and a few farm animals, in a relaxing setting.
Normally, there is a small admission fee, but during Doors Open admission was free. I used my infrared-converted camera with a black and white treatment in mind.
