The Hollinger House at the Timmins museum is now open for tours. The free tours of the historical home showcase what life was like for miners and their families in the 1900’s. Ward Five Councillor, Michael Doody, says the homes are part of Timmins’ history with the Hollinger Mine employing 3000 people at one time.
Museum Curator, Karen Bachmann says there were 150 homes built in 1919, and although many of them were torn down, the museum has maintained and preserved one.
