Artifacts tell one part of the story in a community. Our first community display was during Pasadena’s Come Home Year in 2012. Over the course of 10 days, residents, tourists, and visitors coming home all visited our display at the Pasadena Public Library. Folks in the community graciously donated or loaned items from their own homes. Each item had a story. Viewers shared their own stories of using similar items when they were growing up in the town. After such a successful display, and such an overwhelmingly positive response, we launched the first committee of the Pasadena Heritage Society – NL!
If you have an artifact you feel might be of interest to us, please do not hesitate to connect with us.
Donation to the Pasadena Public Library
As a result of our heritage display at the library, the Come Home Year Committee generously donated $2000.00 to the library for being such a gracious host. Presenting the donation is Trish Wicks of the Come Home Year Committee to Carole Spicer of the Pasadena Public Library Board. Both ladies went on to serve on the first Pasadena Heritage Society - NL advisory committee!

Occasionally, we set up temporary community displays at special events.
