Sir Arthur Currie Travelling Exhibit

Saturday September 16 to Saturday November 11, 2017

Drawing from sources and materials relevant to his early life in rural Strathroy, Ontario, the exhibit considers the influence of his youth on his remarkable rise through the ranks from a militia gunner before the First World War, to become the first Canadian commander of the Canadian Expeditionary Force. The exhibit traces the humble roots of Canada's greatest military commander and celebrates his achievements and legacy as a source of national pride.

Quizzical History Exhibit

Thursday June 23 to Saturday September 9, 2017

This Exhibit is based on excerpts from the book "Quizzical History" which collects all the questions and answers of a three-year history quiz contest about Oxford County people, places and things that the Oxford Historical Society ran in Woodstock's weekend newspaper, The Oxford Review, between 1999 and 2003. The questions touched on the area's interesting history from the early 1800s until modern times.

This book has been produced as a joint project between the Oxford Historical Society and Woodstock Museum, NHS, to celebrate the 150th Birthday of Canada's founding in 1867.
