larger_image003_0.jpgOn September 5, LAHMS (Lennoxville-Ascot Historical and Museum Society) launched its newest exhibit, UPLANDS: 150 Years in Lennoxville, to coincide with the celebration of the house’s birthday party. The public is invited to explore the changing face of Uplands and Lennoxville since the erection of the house in 1862.

Displays include studies of the Great Fire in 1874 and a series of excerpts pulled from an April 12, 1862 copy of the Sherbrooke Gazette. The three families who lived in the Uplands house (the Paddons, the Scarths and the Speids) are each represented with their family trees and the exhibit is garnished with an array of clothing and accessories which would have been worn at the turn of the century. Finally, viewers can enjoy a passage through the years of Uplands since its earliest days with the help of a video presentation.

The exhibit will continue until December 16th, 2012. Guests are invited to visit from Wednesday to Sunday between 1 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. Admission is FREE! For more information, please visit our website: www.uplands.ca or contact us at (819)564-0409.
