Royalty in the Muskeg

Join the Edson and District Historical Society on April 30th, at 7pm for a look at the fascinating lives of Prince Leo Alexandrovitch Galitzine & Princess Marguerite Therese Raynaud-Carcas. The Royal couple once called the McLeod Valley home and started one of the first airplane companies in the province from Bear Lake. Through a tragic incident, the Leo left the area to pursue a career in show biz in Hollywood. 

A screening of the classic 1941 movie The Chocolate Soldier, where Prince Leo was part of the cast, will start after the talk. 

The event is free, but donations are gratefully accepted.

14 members of the public were given a rare treat to view the artefacts not on display at the museum on March 29th. The near capacity crowd was given a tour of both the upstairs displays as well as the basement permanent collection holdings. 

Basement tours are rare occurances in museums and CTV Primetime interviewed museum staff member Madison Sharman on the tour and its significance. To watch this interview click here
