The Mississippi Valley Textile Museum, in conjunction with the Millfall Condominium, will celebrate the 150th anniversary of what was one of Canada’s largest and most successful woolen mills. The event will be held at the Museum and will be a wonderful evening celebrating the Mill’s history. See below some of the special features of the event.
Enjoy live entertainment with Alex George, Ken Ramsden, Glen Silverson’s Sons, and the Sweeney Sisters.
There will also be light refreshments available to all guests.
Auctioneer Frank Burns will be selling a fabulous array of donated items ranging from pies and gift certificates to quilts and gift baskets.All proceeds will be going towards Museum operations.
In the Summer of 2017, during a restoration project on the outside of Millfall Condominiums, it was good fortune that a time capsule from 1880 was discovered! The items that were found inside will be on display for all to see.
The Museum is also excited to announce that it will be sealing away a new time capsule for future generations!
