Strathcona County Museum & Archives is proud to announce their latest special exhibit; Paving the Way: Pioneers of the County Part III is the third in a series of exhibits which celebrate pioneer families from Strathcona County. This year we feature the Briggs and Trimble families. These families have played an important role in the history and heritage of Strathcona County.
Over the past two summers we have feature the Ball, Marsh and Stannard families, as well as the Ottewell and Hanlan families. These exhibits give us a chance to showcase many of the artifacts and stories that have been donated to the museum by members of our pioneer families and their descendants.
If you would like the Strathcona County Museum & Archives to capture your family history, please feel free to contact us or drop in for a visit. “We believe in building community relationships,” says Starr Hanson, Manager/Curator. “We are soliciting for your family stories. Your story deserves to be told and shared. We do not want to lose the opportunity to capture your stories about how your life was growing up in the area. Reflect on the past and preserve it for future generations. We would like to preserve your photographs and historic documents by adding them to our archives as a permanent resource for researchers and the community.”
Dedicated Museum volunteers created this exhibit, for which their hours of research and organization cannot go unnoticed. Paving the Way is on display until July 15. The Museum is open Monday to Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
