Brubacher House Museum

Laura and Josh Enns live in a museum — a Mennonite farmhouse built in 1850 that is located smack-dab in the middle of the University of Waterloo tech park. For the past four years, the young couple has called Brubacher House their home, living in modern accommodations on the second floor as they promote and manage the museum and its grounds. They're also working to update the narrative of the land to reflect its origins as territory belonging to the Attawandaron, Huron-Wendat, Anishnaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. As part of Digital Doors Open, watch the video below to learn more about living and working in this museum.
