Symbols in Stone: Part II

Drummond Hill Cemetery is rich in symbolism, with its long history stretching back to the War of 1812. What can the gravestones tell us about spirituality, religion, culture, and the arts over the past two hundred years? Join historian Dr. Adam Montgomery as he takes us on a tour of some of the most interesting stones and symbols found there. Join us for part two of the series, posted on July 9 @ 7pm.

The Poppy Project

The Poppy Project is a collaborative community art project by the Niagara Falls History Museum in conjunction with Stick'N Needles Guild. The Museum needs your help to create a large scale installation of knit and crochet poppies to drape over the exterior of the Museum for Remembrance Day. The public is asked to create these poppies at home or at the Museum at regularly scheduled events throughout 2020.

 Members of the Stick’N Needles Guild will be on hand to help participants with the poppy patterns. Coffee, tea and yarn will be provided at these events, but please bring your own needles or hook if you have them.
