Come hop aboard Gertie at the Museum to discover Gabriola’s historic places and stories.
Pioneer descendent Danna Lewis (Brown) believes story telling has an essential role in history. “The stories of the pioneers that I’ve listened to all my life bring history alive more than any chronology.
The stories reflect the emotions and relationships of people. I grew up in a culture of storytelling that doesn’t exist today. For example, Gossip Corner is one place in time that reflects Gabriola’s history of gathering together to share stories. ”
Find out where Gossip Corner really was!
Tickets can be purchased from the Museum (Daily, 10:30-4:00) for $30pp and $50/2 people. Bring your own drinking water.
