Fire destroyed the original centre and all its contents. In partnership with Donna Ilago of XYZ Design, we created a new interpretive centre. The eight galleries tell the story of the creation of limestone, the quarry and the town that grew up around it. We began by consulting with the many users of the centre.

S. Dangerfield Interpretive Planning was responsible for developing all interpretive aspects while XYZ Design was responsible for interior design. We both worked with our respective sub-contractors, for example Chase Studio to create the diorama. The centre combines the latest interactive technology with classics like a diorama of the Ordovician Sea.

We had a vision of an interpretive centre dedicated to preserving the legacy of the men who toiled in the stone quarries. From the beginning Sherry understood what we wanted to achieve and through her resourceful, creative, and detail oriented approach she has succeeded in making that vision a reality. Despite our long wish list and modest budget, the new centre is everything we wanted and so much more…
