402 Anderson Street: A History serves as a celebratory, commemorative show dedicated to the old museum site on the corner of Anderson Street. This exhibition marks the legacy of those who have contributed to the arts, culture and heritage in Nelson, BC, notably those directly involved in the establishment of the museum society’s previous location. 402 Anderson Street elaborates upon storied beginnings such as the building’s construction, the Mildred Erb Gallery and the infamous fire of 2003.  This exhibition further identifies and synthesizes the museum society’s history, and a continued effort in ‘looking forward to the past’.
