A “Homecoming”

Today the Cornwall Community Museum received one of the most historically significant donations it has received in its 52 year history.

Linda Wilson, Cornwall Tourism Coordinator (on left), is shown with Philip deBelle, and Heather Bashow, both descendants of the Wood House family. They are celebrating their donation of the original English Sheffield silver plate tea service in the Confederation Parlour at the Wood House aka Cornwall Community Museum. Curator Ian Bowering, said that: “after more than half a century, the tea service has been returned home due to the thoughtfulness and care for our heritage by the descendants of Jonas Wood UEL family.”

The Cornwall Tourism Visitor Information Centre is located inside the Museum.
