Christmas in Cornwall and the Cornwall Community Museum.

The Christmas parade heading west down 2nd Street, across from the Cornwallis Hotel, mid 1970s.

On Saturday December 16th the Museum will be holding a Christmas sing-along complete with hot cider and Santa Claus.

For info for this free event call 613 936-0280 or cornwallhistory@outlook.com

Charles Lant is on the right.

Winston Churchill on a World War II era Christmas card produced in Canada as part of the Canadian Artists Series.

The inside features a quote from Churchill and Season’s Greetings.

Along with the Christmas events, the Museum will also be holding a book sale of local out of print histories, such as the one above.

There is only one copy left of this book listing the careers of Doctors on 19th century Eastern Ontario.  Cost $10.

Another out of print title in our book room, available for your library.

Christmas postcard, 1907. NFS.

We still have copies of this terrific local history by Joan Levy-Earle.

The cover depicts Kyte’s well regarded Christmas window.

For one day only if you buy this book plus UNFORGOTTEN MARY MACK CORNWALL’S FIRST LADY, you can have pair for $40, a saving of $5 plus HST.

If you are interested in the Lost Villages and the St. Lawrence Seaway or river stories, this book is a must.

Another must have for local history buffs.  If Mary was still on Council, we would have an art gallery by now.  (we owe the Museum’s existence to her work.)

We also have Seaway Postal history and local postcards for collectors for sale, well below what you would pay for anywhere else.
