Growing collections in history
Under executive director Tammy Morgan, more changes are taking place at the Cranbrook History Centre (CHC). The Paleontology Gallery will open this summer, featuring locally found trilobites; Teck Coal has promised to donate significant mining memorabilia; and the FW Green Clinic has donated early medical instruments and an antique x-Ray. New merchandise in the gift shop will include art and products from local artists and artisans. And ground has been broken for Phase 1 of the Heritage Railcar Preservation Building, a $4-million project at the CHC in Cranbrook. The structure is being built by Tyee Log & Timber, a Kimberley contractor.
