United Counties Museum – Parlour 1963 and Mary Mack.

The United Counties Museum in the Wood House (aka Cornwall Community Museum) parlour as displayed in 1963, under the direction of Mary Mack.

On April 8th at 2 pm, the Museum will unveil its CONFEDERATION ERA parlour, see if you can spot the changes when you visit.

Another view of the parlour.

Unfortunately the period costumes are no longer on display as light and age prevents them from being displayed in this manner for preservation.

The good news is though, most of the costumes have been saved!





Canadian Ensign, 1873 to 1905.

The flag changed to reflect new entries into confederation.  This example shows the Coats of Arms of Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Manitoba and British Columbia.

The flag was donated to the Museum in 2015 by Ernest Filion.

At 1:30 on April 8th the Museum will hold a flag raising ceremony to launch its 150th year of Confederation activities.  Everyone is welcome.

Founding Museum chair, Mary Mack.  Without Mary’s leadership and passion for history we would not have the museum we have today.
