Revelstoke Museum and Archives opens “Stories Beneath the Surface” exhibition

Curator Cathy English and her team at the Revelstoke Museum and Archives are telling the storiesĀ of the communities forced to leave their homes when the valley was flooded in the 1960s with the creation of the Hugh Keenleyside Dam.

The exhibit called Stories Beneath the Surface opened on October 18th and will be in place for the next five years.

The exhibition features a touch-screen display with an interactive map where visitors can dive in and explore the rich history of the valley before and after flooding. This map is also available on the museum website.

Listen to Cathy speak about the exhibition on CBC’s website.
