Uncrating of newly restored Harry Horwood stained glass windows
In August of 2012, Upper Canada Village, in conjunction with Northern Art Glass, had restored two 19th century stained glass windows from the home of J.P. Wiser in Prescott Ontario. These windows had been salvaged from the house when it was demolished in the late 1950s and kept in storage until 2012. The windows had suffered extensive damage, and required detailed and meticulous restoration.
Eleven windows from the Wiser mansion, all dating to the 1880s and all by reknowned stained glass master Harry Horwood, are now on permanent display in Crysler Hall, Upper Canada Village.
