Heritage Week displays are at Lambton Mall

You have until Sunday to see what groups are doing to celebrate aspects of area's history

Interested in displays of local history? You have until Sunday at the Lambton Mall to dig a little deeper into what local groups have been putting together.

It’s Heritage Week in Sarnia-Lambton and displays from the Lambton County Archives, the archival centre for genealogical and local history research in the area, are among the treasures.

The Friends of Cull Drain Bridge have a display at Lambton Mall. The original structure is currently in Mike Weir Park awaiting a decision on its fate, but the piece on display was fabricated from original drawings.

Other groups, including the Friends of Cull Drain, are also taking part.

The Sarnia Heritage Committee, which is a legally mandated group (under the Ontario Heritage Act, 1974), is showcasing to Mall visitors a little glimpse of history. It has also had pieces of a large collection of historical photos at the lobby of Sarnia City Hall this week.

People like Anne Marie Gillis, a City/County councillor who sits on the Sarnia Heritage Committee, says the displays are always popular.

The enthusiasm people have for historical information has also found its way into social media.
