Bruce County Museum and Cultural Centre Bus Tour of 2011 is set for Monday

The First Bruce County Museum and Cultural Centre Bus Tour of 2011 is set to go on Monday.

The tour explores the final resting places or early German Bruce County settlers.

Program Co-ordinator Nancy White says many of the early settlers to the area were of German decent and settled in southeastern Bruce County and Port Elgin.

White says there will be guides and guest speakers on Monday's tour.

White says the tour will visit some of the churches and cemeteries the German immigrants built.

She says you will also learn about monuments and what they mean, as well as the history of the people resting there.

The tour starts at the Bruce County Museum and Cultural Centre in Southampton at 8:30 AM on Monday and lasts all day.

For museum members, the tour costs 45 dollars, and 65 dollars for non members.
