James Mackintosh Bell Mural Unveiling

August 25, 2017 - 19:00 - 21:00

The North Lanark Regional Museum is excited to announce the addition of a new mural of Almonte’s very own James Mackintosh Bell!

Please join us on Thursday, August 25th at 7:00pm for refreshments and the official unveiling of the mural, completed by local artist and Notre Dame Catholic High School graduate, Alexander Braun.

Raised in Almonte, James Mackintosh Bell was a noted geologist, author, and soldier. After attending Queen’s College in Kingston, Bell received his doctorate from Harvard University and was then appointed as the Director of the Geological Survey of New Zealand, the youngest to ever hold the position! Bell joined the Canadian Forces in World War I and was awarded the Order of the British Empire in 1919. Over the years, he held a number of positions as a consultant in mineral exploration and mine development, travelling across the country.

We are so pleased to work with the Municipality of Mississippi Mills in order to honour Bell’s memory and his contributions to Canada.
