Kootenay News Opening Reception

November 8 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Event Navigation

In the late 19th and early 20th century, a thriving community and an active press went hand-in-hand. Multiple papers were a sign of prosperity. If the lone newspaper went broke, it did not bode well for the town’s future.

This exhibit will present the story of Nelson’s print media, from a weekly hand-cranked paper to a bustling daily with a circulation larger than the city it served, to today’s online publications.

The exhibition runs November 2, 2019 to February 17, 2020. It is curated by local historian Greg Nesteroff.
