Our History Nights’ presentations on local history themes tell stories drawn from the past of Prince Edward County and the surrounding area. It’s a “history hits the road” show taking our treasury of tales to local venues – resorts, churches, campgrounds, town halls, inns and wineries to share this inheritance with residents and visitors.
Sometimes, we are the featured speakers for our History Nights’ presentations. We draw upon our deep inventory of stories captured through our History Moments television series, documentaries, and many print articles published as magazine features and blog posts.
On other occasions, we invite area authors to discuss their research into a wide range of historical topics – everything from the heroic role of lighthouses in aiding navigation on the Great Lakes and their tragic decline, to the natural history of this special place as a major area for migrating birds, and the use of local history as historical backdrops and plots for local authors. We also like to showcase historic properties as the venues for these events – theatres, museums, churches, and town halls not always open to the public.
It’s all part of our initiative to engage residents, students and visitors in the history that is all around us. We firmly believe that if people know about their history, they will participate in efforts to capture it before it is lost to Time… and to ensure it is preserved for future generations. Stay tuned for more news about upcoming History Nights presentations.
