Colby-Curtis Museum presents a new exhibition honouring the St. Francis valley

By Emilie Hackett, Special to the Record – Stanstead’s Colby-Curtis Museum has announced the launch of its new summer exhibition, Waterways of the St. Francis, starting June 15 up until October 19. The exhibition, a collaboration with the Sherbrooke Nature and Science Museum and the Quebec Anglophone Heritage Network (QAHN), will feature archival images, photographs of recent archeological finds in the St. Francis River basin as well as many artefacts from the Stanstead Historical Society (SHS) collection. The St. Francis valley spans over 10,000 square kilometres, from northern New England to the St. Lawrence Seaway, covering the Appalachian highlands, forests, farms, and townsites. Prominent waterways have shaped patterns of human migration and settlement across southern Quebec throughout the centuries. See full story in the Thursday, June 6 edition of The Record.
