What would it be like to live in a museum?
"Life Upstairs" is a digital exhibit that tells the fascinating history of Brubacher House's live-in hosts through personal stories, photos and videos from past and present hosts.
Curated by Brubacher House 2021 Digital Historian-in-Residence Bethany Leis in partnership with Web Designer Chris Steingart. Supported by the J. Winfield Fretz Publication Fund of the Mennonite Historical Society of Ontario and Conrad Grebel University College.

We loved to bring sledders hot chocolate and meet people out on the winter hill, encouraging them to come visit us again in warmer days.
Since 2017, we have welcomed seasonal Artists-in-Residence--local, emerging or professional artists and artisans--to create and share work inspired by Brubacher House and its history. The program also provides opportunities for artists to engage with the community through participatory arts workshops.
