During Heritage Week, the Rossland Heritage Commission exhibited an inventory of heritage homes in Rossland.

The exhibition showcased the 1986 Rossland Inventory of Heritage Homes binders, as well as maps of the historic neighbourhoods of Rossland that people can take, and a display of archival research material at the museum that people can access if they want to research their own homes.

Jackie Drysdale, chair of the Rossland Heritage Commission hosted the exhibitions, where residents could browse the inventory while having a cup of tea and a slice of cake.

The commission showed off their inventory  from Feb. 19 -21.

The exhibition focused on the homes and neighbourhoods of Rossland.

The Rossland Museum and Archives was also represented and offered a service where a resident living in a heritage home can research the building’s  history.  That includes such things as who owned it, what it was worth, when it was built and what the taxes were back then.

The museum continues to offer the service throughout the year.
