This year Canada observes 150 years of its history since Confederation and 100 years since Vimy Ridge. Lennoxville-Ascot Historical and Museum Society (LAHMS) has chosen to celebrate with an exhibit showing ways in which those 150 years have affected life in Lennoxville and Ascot. Starting June 4, 2017 LAHMs will be hosting this exhbit entitled 1867- 2017: 150 years in Lennoxville and Ascot.

A display of historical objects and photographs will celebrate our rich heritage by focusing on education, military, transportation, royalty , toys and businesses in our area.

From Queen Victoria to Queen Elizabeth, we mark the Commonwealth’s two longest reigning monarchs, each leaving her mark. The Lennoxville-Ascot community made significant contributions to both World Wars and many of the young men involved never returned to their families. The community has been a centre for education from the early days, a reality which persisits to the present. Rivers, roads and railways have all intersected in Lennoxville and Ascot and have been integral to the flow of life from before the 1800s through to the present time. 1867-2017: 150 yers in Lennoxville and Ascot speaks to us with many voices.
