On this #MuseumMonday we want to give an historic welcome (and welcome back!) to our wonderful summer interns, Rosemary and Sarah! Rosemary is a future junior at Saranac Lake High School with a love for history and museums. Sarah, a rising senior, was an intern last year and had so much fun she decided to join us again this year. They are already off to a great start scanning items from the collections, writing social media posts, and welcoming museum visitors. We're happy to have them here with us this summer, and we hope you'll stop by and say "hi!" to them. These internships are made possible by Kay and Marvin Best's support of the Ralph Kelly Education Fund. .

Today I was pleased to be at Mersea Park for the unveiling of a plaque to commemorate the final deadly battle of the War of 1812, that took place nearby on July 14, 1814. This was the battle battle with casualties on our side of the border. Thanks to the Leamington & Mersea Historical Society and the Municipality of Leamington for ensuring that this important event will not be forgotten. There is so much history in our own backyard that most of us don't even realize, so it's great to have memorials like this. #onthe42 #experienceleamington #localhistory #warof1812 #canadianhistory #committedtocommunity

It was #MeToo moment decades before #MeToo even existed. Gerald Regan, former Nova Scotian premier and Liberal party statesman, brought to court on eight charges of sexual assault against victims as young as 14.
Journalist Stephen Kimber was there watching the trial in 1998 when Regan was eventually acquitted, and joins us this week to talk about everything that happened.
Also on this episode, we discuss the tragedy of the Swissair crash, Halifax police try to shut down Savage Love, Titanic-mania sweeps through the tourism industry and council starts looking for solutions to cleaning up the harbour.

MEET THE MAYOR #yvr #historylesson
.
This is David Oppenheimer, Vancouver's Second Mayor and the namesake of the park we face. From Bavaria to the US to BC, he lived quite a life!
.
During his four one-year terms as mayor, many city services were established: the fire department, a ferry across Burrard Inlet, the streetcar system and a water connection from the Capilano River. He also lobbied for more parkland, playgrounds, completion of a city hospital and a Jewish section in the city's Mountain View Cemetery. David was also extremely philanthropic, giving to many charities and communites in his time as Mayor. .

It has been announced recently that Greyhound will be stopping its service in BC and the Praries due to a decrease in ridership over the past decade. Reasons behind the low usage include cheaper alternatives (e.g. different bus service, airplane) as well as more people owning vehicles themselves.

This decision is going to affect approximately 2 million people in Western Canada who rely on this service. What are your thoughts? Have you used Greyhound before? Share them below.

In this picture is a windup Greyhound bus toy circa 1939-1942.

For my third stop today, I wanted to give y'all a special treat. When I started getting involved in local theater three years ago, I took a Shakespeare acting class at one of the local theaters. I met so many great people in that class who have become very dear friends, but one in particular got me an "IN"....Kristin Cooper! At the time, Mrs. Cooper was the wife of State Attorney General Roy Cooper and now she is the First Lady of North Carolina. When she found out I was holding the baton today, she offered to give my mom and I a tour of the Executive Mansion. The Mansion is currently closed to tours so this is a really unquie opportunity.
The mansion is the "people's house" and is property of all NC citizens. I'm very proud of my North Carolina heritage and of our local history, so this was particularly exciting for me.
The house was beautiful! Mrs. Cooper has done a great deal to work on the restoration of the home where it had fallen into disrepair, including bringing in some of the original rugs, which we saw delivered today. She also took us through her flower, herb, and vegetable garden and beehives where they grow much of what they use in their kitchens. There are over 1000 native NC plants there. Very cool!
I feel very lucky to have befriended Mrs. Cooper. She is active in supporting local arts and education--obviously two very important areas for me. I hope you enjoy the RDUBaton private tour of the Executive Mansion.

At least something’s come home recently...pleased to have brought this portrait of a young Henry Vigne back to the sitter’s old stomping ground of Epping Forest!
Vigne was Master of the Epping Harriers & hunted the Epping Forest districts of Essex for over 60 years until his death in 1892.
Previously with his descendants in Cambridgeshire, I’ve acquired it for a small exhibition of local art & artists I’m ‘curating’ in our reception area.
In later life Vigne was painted by Sir James Jebusa Shannon but the artist of this is sadly unknown - any thoughts welcome!

Hello again! I'm back at another one of my favorite local spots, NoFo at the Pig (@nofo_at_the_pig)! I'm here with my mom who is going to join me for part of my adventure today. NoFo only does brunch on the weekends, so we are more on the lunch side than the breakfast side...but I can't say no to one of their fabulous mimosas (although they are famous for their Bloody Marys...that's just not my jam!) NoFo is one of those great little spots where the locals always seem to show up. The building is another historic Raleigh building, the old Piggly Wiggly. And NoFo leans into that history...pigs are everywhere! Just look at the adorable blown glass pigs on the chandelier!
They self-describe their food as "quirky Southern." Which is really the best description of anything in the menu. The menu is in constant flux, but there are some old favorites always on the menu, including the Fried Green Tomatoes with pimento cheese and smoked bacon jam or the Shrimp & Grits. As today begins Triangle Restaurant Week, they have a great Prix Fixe menu, so you should definitely try it out before it ends!
When you finish with your meal, you can head upstairs to their store which again features local artists and eclectic gifts.

This is not a place to miss!

Today, the Orangetown Museum examined an incredible dress and veil worn by Nanuet native Rebecca van Houten on her wedding day on January 15th, 1840 💍. #Didyouknow that white wedding dresses weren’t popular until Queen Victoria’s wedding on February 10th, 1840? That was almost a month after Rebecca’s! 😱

Swipe! What started out as a fairly average task (trying to find the minutes from a museum committee meeting in 1915 😴) became immediately awesome when I found the archive collection for said museum contained a handwritten letter from Sir Walter Raleigh! *Brief pause for general wonderment* for anyone not in the know... Walter Raleigh (or Ralegh) was born in East Budleigh, Devon in 1552. This letter is dated 1584 and addressed to a Mr Duke, asking him to sell Hayes Barton, Walter's childhood home for 'being borne in that howse I would rather seat my sealf ther then any wher els' (Stop giggling in the back! He isn't fick, it's just 170 years before Dr Johnson and standardized spelling, alright?) A strapping Devonshire lad, Sir Walter rose to become a favourite of Queen Liz and popularised smoking of tobacco at court. He was imprisoned in the Tower of London when Liz got a bit miffed after Walter secretly married one of her ladies-in-waiting. She let him out to go and find El Dorado, which, inevitably, he didn't. Then she died and was succeeded by James 1st who really, really didn't like our Walter and so flung him back in the Tower for another 12 years. Then let him out to find El Dorado. Again! This time, he not only failed but expressly ignored instructions not to attack the Spanish and... attacked the Spanish. King Jimmy threw a hissy fit and had Walter's head lopped off. The End.

Originally constructed in 1806, the Springfield House sat on a 3,200 acre plantation with primary crops being grain and cattle. In 2011 historical documents were uncovered that outlined pieces including love letters written by John Springs III (who built the house) and Andrew Baxter Springs (who later remodeled in 1850's) to their wives. #LocalHistory

This little lighthouse is one of 2 firsts for Canada! .

Built in 1915 by the Dominion Lighthouse Depot in Ontario, it was the first cast iron lighthouse in Canada! .
It sat on St Paul’s Island, located 18 miles off the coast of Dingwall, NS. .
St Paul’s Island is deceiving and treacherous! Only 1/3 of it is visible, and many shipwrecks occurred due to its mountain and rock hidden in the ocean’s depth. .
So many shipwrecks occurred in the area, St Paul’s was nicknamed the “graveyard of the gulf.”
.

A lighthouse was needed. Two were built of wood and placed on either end of the island. The southwest one burnt down. .
This lighthouse replaced it in 1915. Cast iron was used as a material that could withstand the elements of St Paul’s, yet be relatively light and easy to install. .
It arrived in several parts, which were hoisted to the island using a pulley system, then put together. According to Ruby at St Paul’s Island Museum, we’re still not sure to this day how this lighthouse was fastened to its base on St Paul’s Island. Such would have been a difficult task even with today’s modern technology! .
This lighthouse, proudly sitting on the southwest of St Paul’s Island, lit the way for many a sailor from 1915 until 1982
.

In 1982 it was moved to the waterfront of Dartmouth. It made its way to Dingwall in 2011.
.
In 2012, St Paul’s Island’s southwest lighthouse became the first in Canada in receive heritage designation! .
All of this achieved by a little lighthouse, sitting in a little community, made by a Canadian company! .
Wasn’t a bad way to spend Canada Day! 🇨🇦 .
To learn more, check out St Paul’s Island Museum in Dingwall, NS, off the Cabot Trail.
.
.
Free daily tours are offered! .
St Paul’s Island Lighthouse Heritage designation from the Government of Canada: https://www.pc.gc.ca/progs/lhn-nhs/pp-hl/~/media/progs/lhn-nhs/pp-hl/pdf/HLP-PPP_043_EN-SOS.ashx

Good morning RDU-ers and friends! My name is Rebecca and I'm THRILLED to be your host today for the #RDUbaton.
I am one of the few who can say that I'm a RDU native...originally from Durham and moved to Raleigh in high school. I adore this area and I can't wait to share my favorite spots and hidey holes with you today! I am a high school history teacher and actor in local theater, so don't be surprised to see a lot of places that follow along that line!

I'm starting my day as many Batoners do—with coffee! RDU has SO many great coffee spots that it is hard to pick my favorite. Today, I'm visiting Lucky Tree (@luckytreeraleigh) across from Meredith College on Hillsborough St. This coffee shop has a really chill and artsy vibe which I love. In addition to serving locally roasted coffee, Lucky Tree also features local artists and craftsmen in their shop. You can always find a beautiful piece of jewlrey or pottery...and if you look really carefully in the background, you can see the darling peg dolls made by a friend of mine, @scrambledpegsetsy.

After you stop for coffee, you're in "luck" because Lucky Tree is located in the old Royal Bakery building that includes a conference center, a couple other resturants, a Trading Card Co., ComedyWorx (a local improv theater), and my personal favorite...Sonorous Road Theater and Film Co. (@sonorousroadproductions). Sonorous Road is a theater owned by a local actress and it produces edgy contemporary shows, hosts other "homeless" theater companies, and teaches classes for both kids and adults. I've been lucky enough to show up on the SR stage several different times and I love what this company contributes to local theater. If you every get the chace to check out a show there, I highly recommend it!
Well that's enough for a lengthy introduction...check back again when I meet my mom for lunch at my favorite local restaurant!

The Holy Island of Lindisfarne, Northumberland.

A collection of images from my short visit to Holy Island the other day, so plenty to walk through in this post!
A tidal island off the North East coast of England, Holy Island has history recorded from 6th Century AD and was an important centre of Celtic Christianity under 4 saints.

The priory was founded in 634 by Irish monk Saint Aidan and he remained there until his death. It is also known that Venerable Bede was at the island and was critical that the church found there was not built of stone, but of wood.
The priory was used for over 100 years until a Viking raid on the island in 793, destroying much of the priory. Though it was reestablished in Norman times in 1093, it was suppressed in 1536 under Henry VIII and the remains seen today are left from this period. The original priory site is now occupied by the stone church in the graveyard, and the priory itself is a Grade I listed site.

The castle was built in 1550 as the priory went out of use and many stones from the priory were used when building the castle - the castle is smaller than a typical castle and could perhaps be considered a fort instead. The castle was used in the Jacobite Rising of 1715 by a local who supported it, intending to use it as a landing site for a Jacobite group led by Thomas Forster. However the group did not arrive and when 100 men from Berwick arrived to retake the castle they only held out for 1 day.

On the hill by the priory, there is a memorial to those who died in the first and second world wars from the island. Behind it is the watchtower, and when you reach the end of the hill you can see the cross on the rocks below. Holy Island was often used for pilgrimages and this cross signaled their destination. You can also get a view of Bamburgh castle when looking across to the Farne Islands.

If you are visiting PLEASE CHECK THE TIDE TIMES AS THE CAUSEWAY FLOODS AND IT COSTS THE COASTGUARD A LOT TO RESCUE YOU.

On this day in 1952, a UFO was reported flying in the skies southeast of Piqua. ⠀

1952 has been called "The Year of the UFO" as the US and the world experienced a wave of unidentified flying object sightings. This photo (not taken in Piqua) was taken on July 16th, 1952 by Shel Alpert, a USCG seaman on duty at the Salem Coast Guard Station, in Massachusetts. He said he witnessed four unexplained brilliant lights in the sky. ⠀

On this morning in July 1814, the residents of Ely were waking up following huge celebrations commemorating the signing of the Treaties of Paris. The treaties bought peace with Great Britain, France and the Allied Powers and ended the Napoleonic Wars, the celebrations lasted into the early hours of this morning

The event in Ely was described as happy yet unexpected was said to be celebrated across the Empire with 'unspeakable joy' with the festivities the most costly and extensive than ever seen before; they remind us that 'however oppressive the times, such acts of liberality and justly deserving of praise and worth commemoration

The day in Ely was celebrated with a "very grand an unexpected spectacle" including a parade, music, fireworks and a dinner for almost 3000 people! Upwards of 10'000 people are said to have enjoyed the procession of music, drums and flags and it wound its way through town, eventually to @Ely_Cathedral

The Palace Green is said to have been covered by spectators enjoying the displays of balloons, rockets and 'other superior fireworks' until well after midnight

The picture, a photograph of an original painting, depicts the scene of the festivities on the Nut Holt in Ely, on the day of the Peace Celebrations & the Triumphal Arch can be seen in the background. There is a book, which has more images and details of the day, is available in our gift shop, and highlights several of the characters in the scene such as the local postman, policeman and mayor!
