Join us for Family Day, February 19

Local artist, Jane Eccles, has painted many historical dresses in her career, including two dresses from notable Newcastle women, Olive Wilmot and Anna Vincent Massey, who were part of Newcastle’s “elite” at one time.

These two paintings have been donated to our Society by the artist and will be on display during History Month (February) along with their dresses which are part of our permanent collection.

In order for everyone to be able to see these dresses and their mirror images, we will be open on Family Day, Monday, February 19, from 9:30 a.m. to noon, so bring the family over to take a look. There will be special activities for kids. (up-coming history buffs!).

While you are here, take a look at what else we house in our Historical Room located at Newcastle’s “four corners” in the big red-brick Community Hall.
