LETTER: Seeking historical items


The Boundary Museum Society is hard at work preparing historical exhibits at various locations throughout the Boundary as well as sorting out archival material in preparation for the move to the permanent archival storage and research facility.

If you have old things that may help to tell the story of the history of the Boundary, we would like to hear from you.

We are particularly interested in items that can be identified as having played a part in the history of the area.

These could be objects or photographs, maps, family histories and stories from the past that need preserving.

In the event that you would like to keep the original, we could scan your copies and keep a copy for the museum archives.

Please call the Boundary Museum Society at 250-442-3737, email at boundarymuse@shaw.ca or drop by the site at 6145 Reservoir Rd.

Please do not bring your items to the Art/Heritage Gallery at the old courthouse building as they do not accept donations on behalf of the museum.

Thank you for your efforts in preserving local history.

Sue Adrain, Boundary Museum Society
