Heritage Days at the Museum!
Celebrate Heritage Days (Monday, August 4th, 2008) by taking a historic walking tour of Peace River and hear engaging stories and humourous folklore about our town. We are offering three different fact and fun filled tours:
"History of the River" - Learn the proud boat and navigation history of the Peace River including stories of the fur traders, explorers, and the glamorous steamer, the D.A Thomas.
Time: 10:30 a.m
"Downtown History" - Learn about the hustle and bustle of historic downtown Peace River and the pioneering businessmen and businesswomen whose legacies live on.
Time: 1:00 p.m
"Historic Hills of Peace River" - Learn the history behind Judah, Brick, Misery, George and Grouard Hills.
Time: 2:30 p.m
Also enter to win a sleek and slim backpack generously donated by the staff of Alberta Sustainable Resource Development.
All tours begin at the Peace River Museum and last between 45 minutes - 1 hour.
Please come prepared for the weather as the tours will go rain or shine (but hopefully shine!). The Museum will also be open during this time with regular hours.
Call the Museum (780-624-4261) for more information.
