Goulbourn Museum turns 25 this year and they want your photos of the building

(Republished from the Goulbourn Museum’s blog.)

In celebration of the Museum’s 25th year in Goulbourn, we would like to round up as many vintage photographs of the building as possible for our “Birthday Bash” on June 21st.

We’ve heard stories about meetings, dances, and soirees being held in the Museum in its past life, but don’t have any photographic evidence. We are looking for any interior or exterior shots taken before the Museum and History Centre buildings became what they are today. The older the better! With your permission, we would also like to scan them and make copies for our collection.

If you can help, please call 613-831-2393 or send an email to: kathryn@goulbournmuseum.ca

Newspaper from 1990 showing the original “Museum” sign being tested out on the building.  In the photo, John Leroux of the Goulbourn Parks Department is pictured trying out the sign which was made and donated by Claude Swolfs of Stittsville. Alternations were made to the lighting over the door before permanently installing the sign.
