Museum to launch new database at Heritage Day event

Come and celebrate Heritage Day with the Antigonish Heritage Museum! At the centre of our celebration will be the launch of a new database of historical issues of The Casket. Eventually, it will make available more than 100 years of our community newspaper, FREE of charge to researchers across the globe!

The success of this project has been made possible by generous funding from the Department of Canadian Heritage and the Tourism Digital Assistance Program from the Province of Nova Scotia.

All are welcome! Enjoy refreshments, and various new displays.
