Rossland Museum will be having a family fun day

Museum Day will take place this year on June 2 and will focus on the farms and gardens of Rossland’s past.

The Rossland Historical Museum opened for the season on May 19, and will be showcasing new exhibits on the Farms and Gardens of Rossland.

Did you know there were 13 dairies supplying products to the City of Rossland during the gold mining days.

The Chinese Gardens, located in lower Rossland, provided the vegetables for the town.

Rossland was on the 100 Mile Diet long before that diet became popular.

Photos and maps from the early years highlight how much gardening and farming was being done in this mountain city.

Museum Day will take place this year on Saturday, June 2 from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. and will also focus on the farms and gardens of Rossland’s past.

Activities include a fish pond, rock painting, sunflower planting and gold panning!

Guided site tours, a Bear Aware display, Rossland Real Food’s display and plant sale as well as Music in the Museum will make for a fun time.  Food – hamburgers, hotdogs, chips and juice will be available and admission is by donation to the museum.

Visit your museum – you may just pick up some tips for your own garden.
