Lego Challenge: Built Heritage Edition – St. Joseph’s Convent

Ready for this week’s Lego Challenge!?

We LOVE building with Lego and now YOU can build along with us at home! Each week, Adrian will challenge to build a different historic structure in St. Catharines. You can follow along Adrian’s progress and post your progress with #stcmlegochallenge!

This week, we’re building St. Joseph’s Convent, a beautiful Second Empire building which once sat at the corner of James and Church Streets, opposite the Carnegie Library.

The St. Catharines Museum and Welland Canals Centre, located next to Lock 3 of the historic Welland Canal, is a leading local history museum and community gathering place, engaging visitors and building relationships with partners, while demonstrating curatorial leadership and innovative programming and exhibits. The St. Catharines Museum is dedicated to engaging visitors in the celebration of our local stories and the cultural identity and history of the City. We are a community resource that interprets, exhibits, researches, acquires, and preserves material culture and stories of St. Catharines.
