County Treasures: 50 Years of Sifting for Gold
The Provincial Archives of New Brunswick, in conjunction with the Associates of the Provincial Archives, have opened an exhibit, County Treasures: 50 Years of Sifting for Gold, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Provincial Archives. The exhibit displays 15 items from each of the province’s 15 counties to provide you with a glimpse of the kind of content held by archives and the range of things representative of where you live. The catalogue is available online and can be downloaded for perusal by itself or on your mobile device if you are visiting the exhibit at 23 Dineen Dr., in Fredericton. The exhibit will run until October.
