We’re delighted to announce that the Conception Bay Museum (Customs House) has been longlisted for the National Trust for Canada & Ecclesiastical Insurance’s Cornerstone Award, in the ‘Resilient Places’ category.
This award recognizes Canadian places or landscapes that illustrate extraordinary resilience, significance, and benefit to a community over a sustained period of time, with a successful track record of 10 years or more.
To be longlisted for this award on the 150th anniversary of our building’s construction (1870) and the 50th anniversary of our Museum Association’s founding (1970) is an honour.
We’ll update our followers on the final results, to be announced at the National Trust for Canada’s annual conference.
