Doors Open Kingston & Area invites you to explore fascinating sites that have shaped our community, showcasing how these heritage buildings have evolved to serve modern needs while preserving their historical charm. This year's theme of adaptive re-use highlights the innovative ways our cultural landmarks continue to thrive in their community contexts.

Featuring a replica one-room school and a display gallery, the Frontenac County Schools Museum collects, preserves and displays artifacts and archival material from the elementary (grades 1– 8) one-room schools of Frontenac County from their earliest establishment to the consolidation of school districts in 1970.



The Frontenac County Schools Museum acknowledges that our work takes place on the traditional territories of the Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee and Huron-Wendat peoples. Members of these Indigenous nations and communities share their knowledge, gifts, and stories with our museum community. Our role as a museum is strengthened by their contributions, and the relationships we have with local Indigenous Peoples, organizations, and governments.

The Schools Museum gratefully acknowledges the following for sponsoring and providing funding to the museum: the City of Kingston, the Kingston and Area Association of Museums, Art Galleries and Historic Sites, Tourism Kingston, the Community Foundation for Kingston and Area, the Ontario Trillium Foundation, and the Limestone District School Board.
