On Thursday, February 9th from 2-4 pm, the Albert County Historical Society (ACHS) was pleased to host a heritage presentation at the Town Hall in Riverview as part of the 2023 Winter Carnival programming. Through collaborations with the Riverview Parks and Recreation Department, the Albert County Museum had previously hosted senior tours and provided the AC175 Mobile Exhibit for display in the Town Hall lobby during the 2022 Heritage Week. However, the 2023 February heritage talk at the Town Hall was the first 'in-person' presentation by the ACHS scheduled by the Town of Riverview during a major event. The ACHS greatly appreciated this opportunity as it aligns with their mandate of Outreach and Education.
Also included in the heritage event was the AC175 Mobile Exhibit (featured in photos). Created in 2020 with support by Tourism, Heritage and Culture NB, this four-sided interactive display features 36 unique stories of the history of Albert County and of "The Land, Sea and People" of the area. A timeline of significant events between 1845 and 2020 wraps around the bottom panels of the exhibit. The exhibit is a lasting legacy of the AC175 celebration. It has travelled the region, being displayed at Resurgo Place, Riverview High School, Caledonia Regional High School and the Riverside-Albert Recreation Centre. The exhibit will continue to travel to other locations and will return to the Museum for display in the Court House from May 20 onward for the 2023 operating season. If you would like to discuss having the Mobile Exhibit for an event or program, please call 506-734-2003 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
