Remember When? The countless historical displays at the Fort Ostell Museum in Ponoka are also complemented by many life-like mannequins who are all dressed up in the delightful styles and costumes from more than a century of steady growth, ongoing generations of proud family customs, occupations, and life-style celebrations. In this photo the age-old tradition of the ladies wearing all sorts of unique and colourful aprons for all occasions at home or around the community is displayed. Throughout the building visitors will also be treated to the original and authentic displays of registered nurses uniforms worn at our local hospitals, a grizzly early trapper and explorer, members of our First Nations, brides and grooms, early Mounties, war veterans, and so much more. Our Fort Ostell Museum will be going into summer hours soon, which will be ideal for a visit and stroll through the many displays and a chance to meet the congenial staff, and then have a picnic in the Lion’s Centennial Park. There are also many special events hosted at our museum, while meetings or tours can also be arranged by calling 403-783-5224. Photo courtesy of the Fort Ostell Museum
