Agassiz-Harrison Museum launches online exhibit — Knee High by the First of July

BCHF member Agassiz-Harrison Historical Society—operators of the Agassiz-Harrison Museum— are proud to announce the launch of a new online exhibit titled: Knee High by the First of July.

This bilingual exhibit shares the story of Agassiz’s unique ties between the corn and dairy industry. It was completed through the Community Stories Program, Virtual Museum of Canada. 

The Virtual Museum of Canada, managed by the Canadian Museum of History with the financial support of the Government of Canada, is the largest digital source of stories and experiences shared by Canada’s museums and heritage organizations.

The Community Stories investment program helps smaller Canadian museums and heritage organizations work with their communities to develop virtual exhibits that engage online audiences in the stories, past and present, of Canada’s communities.
