Week #3 – An Empty Museum means a full History Centre!

This week the experts at Bytown Lock & Safe used a hydraulic lift to carefully remove the last artefact from the Museum. Doctor Chanonhouse’s safe would have housed his most expensive and dangerous medicines, as well as his money. It would have been very difficult to break into, and nearly impossible to move at 700 pounds without modern tools. It is now safely tucked away until the fall when the Museum reopens with brand new floors!

Staff also worked diligently to find temporary homes in the History Centre for everything from artefacts, craft and event supplies, and furniture. It was a chore to find a place for everything, but we did it!

We had hoped construction would begin this week but we’ve been assured it will begin on Monday. Fingers crossed!
