In celebration of International Museums Day, May 18, and BC Museums Week, May 17 to 23, here’s a very early photo of the Rossland Museum while it was still in the basement of the courthouse in 1962. Mrs. E.E. Coombs, secretary-treasurer, is on the left and Mrs. Jean Coon, curator, on the right. To celebrate BC Museums Week, be sure to stop by the Rossland Museum, admission by donation. This photo is from the Rossland Museum & Discovery Centre collection digitized courtesy of the Columbia Basin Institute of Regional History. Do you have original photos capturing Rossland’s storied history? Consider donating them to the Rossland Archives where submitted photos can be scanned so you retain the original.
