Oliver Museum gets grant for new outdoor signage
This New Year is bringing some new signage for the Oliver and District Museum.
The Oliver and District Heritage Society has been awarded a grant of $2,004.80 by the Community Foundation of the South Okanagan-Similkameen for designing and installing weatherproof signage for outdoor artifacts.
The artifacts, which are located in the fenced portion of the museum’s Heritage Garden, currently have no outdoor signage. Instead, visitors currently need to ask staff for information about the items, which include mining, agricultural, and irrigation objects from Fairview and Oliver. The artifacts are stored outside both to keep them on permanent display and due to their large size and weight.
The new interpretive signage will allow visitors to learn about the artifacts even when no staff are on- site, during evenings and holidays.
The two large weatherproof signs will be printed by Jacoh Signs and are expected to be installed by the end of March 2021.
