Year in Review 2015: Point Roberts Historical Society

By Sylvia Schomberg

The Point Roberts Historical Society has had opportunities to reach out to the community this year. On the Saturdays when the community market is held, we have had the history room open to the public with one or two docents to greet people and answer questions about the Historical Society and Point Roberts history.

Throughout the summer our group, along with the Point Roberts Library, sponsored a series of presentations about many of the old houses and buildings on the Point, with pictures and videos telling about the original settlers who lived in them.

We have appreciated the offer of space in the All Point Bulletin each month to show a photo from our large collection along with a brief description.

We have hopes of obtaining more space in the community center to display our collection of antiques, archives and photos. We hope the community will be supportive of our using the room where the library is when they move into their new building.

Everyone is invited to come to our meetings on the third Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m. We do not meet in December. We appreciate the new members who have joined us and the interest they show in our projects and activities.
