The Albert County Historical Society is pleased to announce the 60th Anniversary of the Albert County Museum will take place in 2022. The Museum, located in Hopewell Cape, NB, opened to the public in 1962 on the site of the historic 1845 “Shiretown” of Albert County, the once-bustling municipality capital.
“The Albert County Museum came into existence because a group of Albert County citizens knew the importance of preserving the history and artefacts of past generations,” expressed Dawne McLean, President of the Albert County Historical Society. “Without the Museum, valuable information of our past would have been erased....never to be appreciated by future generations.”
Throughout 2022, the amazing history of the area will be shared through in-person events, as well as by digital means, including the Albert County Museum (ACM) website, social media and special videos.
Programming will be for history lovers of all ages and, where possible, will be free of charge, available at a nominal fee, or included with paid admission to the Museum.
