The people at Parks Canada who are in charge of the budget for The MOTHERWELL HOMESTEAD N.H.S are planning on moving to self guided tours next year due to budget cuts. There are plans on eliminating the working horse program, where the land is farmed with horse drawn equipment the way it was done 100 years ago. This is the way we built this country, and without programs like this, all the effort and hardwork that was put forth by our predecessors could very easily be taken for granted and forgotten. These programs, and the people who run them, serve not only as a reminder of past years/struggles, but also as motivation and education for many generations to come.
