About Lay of the Land:

You are here! This interactive exhibition will orient visitors in time and place through an installation of maps, spanning time immemorial to present day. Lay of the Land invites all visitors to understand our complex relationship to the land, past and present, and to the place that we now call Guelph.

On loan from Canadian Geographic is the Indigenous Peoples Atlas of Canada. Also displayed is a territory map of Treaty 3: Between the Lakes Purchase, the 1784 land agreement between the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation and the British Crown. On public view for the first time in this exhibition is an 1868 map of the City of Guelph, recently conserved by the Canadian Conservation Institute.
