Exploring the vast grounds of Beechwood, this version of the tour program focuses not only on the history of Beechwood and those buried here, but more specifically on those who were involved with the Indigenous Community. Those like Dr. Peter Henderson Brice, who while working at Indian Affairs documented the health crisis in the Residential school system; and Nicolas Flood Davin, who wrote the book “Industrial Schools for Indians and Half Breeds” that was used as the foundation for creating the residential schools.

The tour lasts roughly 1 hour, and is free of charge. It will begin at the Beechwood Gazebo.
