On September 14, 15, 27, and 28, Uxbridge Historical Centre will be displaying the extraordinary and remarkable Dowling Scrolls, a work of art created in the 1870s by the Reverend James Dowling of Uxbridge. This is a rare opportunity to see the Scrolls, brought out of storage for this special occasion.

In the 1870s, Reverend James Dowling painted an over 400-foot-long and 7-foot-tall mural, comprised of 40 different panels featuring ancient and biblical scenes and cities. Reverend Dowling painted the scrolls over a year and a half period during his tenure at the original Baptist church in Uxbridge. Dowling, a travelling preacher, would bring the scrolls by horse and buggy to his circuit churches, unwinding the scrolls to a scene relevant to his sermon.

This special exhibit is included in regular admission to the Historical Centre’s heritage buildings and historical displays. The cost is $5 adult, $4 senior/student, $3 child, and $14 for a family pass.
