The Comox Archives and Museum is pleased to announce an upcoming exhibition titled Significant Faces of the Valley which focuses on noteworthy women vital to the growth and enrichment of Comox. During the upcoming year we will be rotating and highlighting historical and contemporary faces significant for their outstanding contributions to Comox.
Our exhibit featuring Canada’s 150th year is well under way.
Please, come have a look at the many items Comox residents have donated to our collection.
Some highlights include items from the Lorne Hotel, Elk Hotel, the Bay Store, Mack Laing, and Melda Buchanan.
Alongside these featured items, there are additions to our ongoing interests in the maps and aerials of the Comox Area.
Our new exhibit is commemorating the Centennial Anniversary of the 102nd Battalion that trained on Goose Spit. On June 10th, 1916 the troops departed from the Comox wharf on the Princess Charlotte and fought many of the important battles during WW1. The exhibit will run through 2016.
2013 is the Year of St Joe’s Hospital. 100 years in the Valley.
Come and see our special display that shows the history of the hospital. “How we grew”.
