History About Town Week Returns

Creston MuseumHeritage Week, News & Articles, What We're Up To Now Leave a Comment

It’s that time of year again – the middle of July, when we get out of the Museum’s walls and show you the fascinating history that’s all about town!

We have the classic tours:

  • Downtown Creston / The Great Creston Bank Robbery – an exploration of the evolution of downtown combined with one of the most entertaining stories to come out of local history anywhere.
  • The Dow Addition – a wander through one of Creston’s oldest residential districts to see how it has changed over time.
  • Settlers and Pioneers – a chance to explore the history of Pioneer Cemetery and the settlers who built the community
  • Coming to Canada – a visit to Forest lawn Cemetery to “meet” some of the people who have come to Creston from other parts of the world.

And, new this year: Grain Industry and Elevators. Yes, we are going through the red grain elevator, in between exploring the history of reclamation and the transportation facilities that were so instrumental to the local grain industry.

We have as many as three tours going each day, from July 15 to July 20. Morning tours start at 10:00 AM, and we’re offering evening tours at 7:00 PM. You’ll find a full schedule here.

Space is limited on all tours, and some of them do fill up fast. We recommend signing up in advance! And, as always, if you have any questions, please feel free to give us a shout – 250-428-922 or tammy@crestonmuseum.ca.
