The Sifton-Cook Heritage Centre
Come back for our 5th Season
May 21 - October 10, 2016
Funding is underway to raise a set of flags, which would hang like banners above the Heritage Centre fence which runs along Orr Street. Keith Oliver's plan shows how the flags would hang at a height dictated by the nearby power lines. It is suggested that the earliest flag would be what became known as the King's Colours, flown here until 1802. It is similar to the Union Jack but without the red diagonal Cross of St. Patrick.
You can help raise a flag by contributing to the Flags Up! Campaign. To find out how and for the latest update click here.
On site pick-up can be arranged, or local delivery for an extra $1. For distance delivery we need to charge the Post Office rates and sorry, we can't guarantee delivery before Christmas! Clicking here will take you to our shopping list.
Recently Erin Walsh invited George Parker, builder, operator and story teller of our model railway, for an interview on Northumberland Radio. George spoke about how he got involved with the Centre and what he has learned about the Cobourg & Peterborough Railway and the Rice Lake Bridge. You can listen by clicking start arrow below. Could there be more to come?
Most of the Exhibits from 2014 - "Our Military Story" - are now uploaded and can be viewed along with those of 2012 & 2013 by clicking here.
The Cobourg Museum Foundation is a registered charitable organization that operates for the benefit of the public. It is supported first of all by its faithful volunteers and membership. Private donations, and the support of the Town of Cobourg and other agencies including our Provincial and Federal Governments are vital to its continued development.
