This unique exhibit has been developed with the assistance of community groups, local businesses, and individuals who give voice to artifacts from the Museum’s permanent collection as well as items belonging to local collectors and groups.
The artifacts in this display help tell the story of Rossland, evolving from its early years as a flourishing mining town, to a vibrant arts and sports community of today.
As you experience the exhibit, we invite you to ask your own questions about what from the past is important. How a story – be it a biography or historical perspective – can be told from a different point of view.
Four main themes emerged in the development of this exhibit: mining and industry; sports; community history; and culture. However, each theme is not independent of the others, for the story of Rossland is as layered as diverse as its miners.
