The Archives Have Arrived

After a lightning fast construction phase, the Edson and District historical Society is pleased to announce that the archives have been safely transferred from the Edson & District Public Library to their new home, the Galloway Station Museum.

Staff member, Madison Sharman will soon be off to the Archives Institute Training Program in Calgary for training in procedures and best practices in facilitating and maintaining a community archives program. When she returns, all efforts will be directed to getting the archives up and running and open for public use.

Arts Alive Photography Exhibit

Once again the Arts Alive Festival has kicked off and the Galloway Station Museum is displaying the photography of local youth.

Photos will be adjudicated by local professional photographers and then awards will be presented during the Awards Gala (also taking place at the museum) on May 20th.

Water Tower

The Edson and District Historical Society was approached by the Town of Edson to document the demolition of the water tower.

When the tower came down on April 22nd, Galloway Station Museum staff joined EDHS President, Jim Gomuwka, and members of the media on the burm at the edge of the park to record the historic event.

Planning and research are currently underway to create a comprehensive history of the Edson icon and will be made available to the public upon completion.

Watch the Global News account of the historic event here.
