It's sure to be an informative evening at this edition of Tuesday Night at the Museum. On Tuesday, June 18th at 7pm, Jim Brownell presents The Creation of the Lost Villages: Guest Talk with Jim Brownell, Past President, Lost Villages Historical Society.
Over 6,500 people were displaced in the name of progress for the sake of the St. Lawrence Seaway and International Hydro Electric project. Casualties of progress, the villages and hamlets disappeared beneath the waters of the newly created Lake St. Lawrence, but they stayed alive in the memories of their former residents. Join Jim Brownell for an insightful talk about this historic flooding. This talk is in conjunction with the O.C. Madden’s “Seaway of Yesterday” art project currently hanging at the museum.
Admission is only $3 and tickets are available at the door. 'Tuesday Night at the Museum' is a monthly feature at the L&A County Museum & Archives, located at 97 Thomas Street East in Napanee.
