Heritage House Museum Fundraiser

November 10, 2017

For Immediate Release:

Journey back in time with a multi-media presentation at Station Theatre

Join the Heritage House Museum at the Station Theatre on November 26th from 2pm to 4pm for the museum’s annual fundraiser “A Glimpse into the Past.” Experience Smiths Falls’ history like never before with this blend of archival footage and photographs, on the big screen for the first time, and a series of local speakers to help bring them to life. Tickets are $20 per person and will be available for purchase at Heritage House Museum, 11 Old Sly’s Road, and at the door.

Heritage House Museum has over 2,400 digitized archival photographs covering the nineteenth and twentieth centuries in Smiths Falls and surrounding area. These snapshots and videos of Smiths Falls through the ages might even spark a few memories from long-time residents while providing almost 200 years of history in two short hours. Speakers will touch on how the Beatles are connected to Smiths Falls, the railway impact, canal, veterans and more.

This event is the major fundraiser of the year for the Heritage House Museum. Tickets sales will go to the museum and help it to keep history alive in Smiths Falls.
