New display at Cultural Centre in Kinghorn

 Photos by Barry Wallace

The latest historical presentation at the King Cultural & Heritage Centre is called 'A PLACE TO CALL HOME: The History & Heritage of King Township'.   The exhibit traces, through artifacts, stories, and photos, the development of King from mills and rolling hills to today's busy township.
Pictured at top are women's boots worn by Clara (Ellsworth) Flavelle as part of her 'going away outfit' after she wed Joseph Flavelle in 1882.
Pictured at left (above) is a pair of wool and leather children's boots from the early 1900s.
Below, is a photograph the choir of the Strange Presbyterian Church on Weston Road in the late 1800s.


Above is a display of mourning clothing and paraphernalia including clothing, jewelry, gloves, photos plus other items.  Below is a photo of a glass vase from the hamlet of Laskay. The public is invited to visit this presentation until at least the end February.
