1919-1929 The Roaring Decade

August 16 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Free
 

It is with great pleasure that the Mill Bay/Malahat, Bamberton and Cobble Hill Historical Societies announce the reopening of their  Heritage Museum.

Visit this newest attraction located in the former United Church,  built in 1889 and located at 2851 Church Way in Mill Bay.  The Heritage Museum is  open Sundays, 12-3 pm starting July 19.

Step back in time to  1919-1929, The Roaring Decade and discover what life was like 100 years ago.   This exhibit, which includes humorous figures from the Good Old Daze Festival, showcases the economic boom, flapper fashions, the hair raising experience of driving the Malahat and other fascinating events that occurred in this area during the ‘Roaring Twenties’.  See the 500 lb. vault door used to conceal  illegal liquor and learn about Mill Bay’s rum running history.

Masks are required and The Heritage Museum Partnership is confident the safety measures that have been put in place following Work Safe BC guidelines will provide a safe environment for both volunteer staff and visitors.

Admission is by donation and the museum is wheelchair accessible.
