Nestled amongst the mountains is our town of Canmore. The perfect place to escape from the hustle and bustle. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Did you know that Canmore was named in 1884 by Donald A. Smith, an employee of the Canadian Pacific Railway? The name originates from a town on the northwest shores of Scotland named in honor of King Malcolm III of Canmore. (canmore.ca) Photo: @mattscobel
We couldn't have asked for a better night and audience for Collections Assistant Amy's First Thursday talk yesterday! Amy and our Q&A panel featuring Andrew Holder, Rob Alexander, Bob Kuzminski and Sue Shellian had a great time discussing Canmore's history @artsplacecanmore.
Thank you to everyone who came out, artsPlace and the Town of Canmore for hosting this great event series, and for @mr.m.williams for asking the questions!
It’s that time of week again! Can you guess the #whatsitwednesday mystery item? Bonus points if you can tell us how the item was used, and by whom! Good luck and as always, feel free to discuss in the comment section!
Throughout it’s history, Canmore has been no stranger to flooding. Depicted here is a flood that took place in 1923. Join us this Friday, June 22 at 7:00 in the Canmore Civic Centre as we recount as a community the passing of 5 years since the devastating 2013 flood.
Jerry Auld created a sweet video about Canmore's Engine Bridge that we're excited to now have featured on our website. Check it out to learn about this neat piece of Canmore's history and read the article in this week's Outlook to find out more of what went into creating this.
On a walk last night, it was charming to see the @canmoremuseum NWMP Barracks all lit up with people inside. Made us wonder what it would have been like a 100-125 years ago when this was newly built and one of the few buildings on Canmore's Main Street!
We went on a staff trip to the lamphouse yesterday in honor of our upcoming October 19 Coal Shaker fundraiser. If you're like us and you'd like to see this piece of Canmore history looking better, purchasing a Coal Shaker ticket will help us out!
