    On July 1st 1867, at noon, Canada East (Québec), Canada West (Ontario), New Brunswick and Nova Scotia were proclaimed the Dominion of Canada. In Missisquoi County, children were given flags to wave and paper lanterns to hang. The day was celebrated with picnics and political speeches, noisy gun-fire salutes and fireworks.

    When July 1st 1867 arrived, Missisquoi County was ready to celebrate. Our 2017 exhibition features the newspaper stories that captivated and interested Missisquoi’s citizens and showcases objects belonging to our community 150 years ago.
