Waterloo Region Museum

Phone: 519-748-1914
Address: 10 Huron Road, Kitchener

City on Edge exhibit now open at Waterloo Regional Museum. Learn how a city was pushed to the edge during WW1 to the point of changing its name from Berlin to Kitchener through a controversial and high tension referendum. Berlin Ontario and much of surrounding Waterloo County was the centre of German culture in Canada in the early 1900s. From the start of WW1 in 1914, residents of the city were questioned for their loyalty to King, Country and the allied war effort in Europe. Created by the Waterloo Region Museum, the exhibit tells the story of how and why the city of Berlin changed its name to Kitchener on September 1, 1916. This year marks the 100th anniversary of that name change.
